Standard burial

Burial options

Plots are dug to a single depth for a single burial, or they can be dug to double depth which allows loved ones to be buried together.

Up to two burials and eight sets of cremated remains can be buried within a plot, with the permission of the exclusive right of burial holder.

Any person can be buried within the cemetery with the approval of the plot's burial rights holder.

Our tip
