Differing size grave spaces are available at both cemeteries ranging from a full size plot of 9ft x 4ft* through to a child’s plot (under 12 years old) to ashes plots which are 2ft x 2ft plots for cremated remains (ashes).
A full size plot can accommodate up to 2 coffins and 6 caskets of cremated remains (interment of a body cannot take place once an interment of cremated remains (ashes) has taken place). An ashes plot can accommodate 2 caskets of cremated remains. A child’s plot allows for a single interment of a child under 12 years of age, 2 caskets of cremated remains (ashes) may also be interred in a child’s plot after the burial of a child.
In addition to the purchase fee of a grave space (which can be purchased in advance) an interment fee is payable at the time of a burial, as is the gravedigger’s fee. The costs of each option is explained in the Fees and Charges section.
*sizes are given in imperial measurements as this was the unit of measurement used when the cemetery was originally laid out.
