St Michaels Churchyard

When the Church controlled burial ground became full (except for re-openings) in 2004, the Parochial Church Council resolved to relinquish its responsibility for future burials. The Parish Council was legally obliged to accept responsibility for future burials. A forty square metre plot of land was purchased from the Church of England.
The Council sought advice in the method of use and the drafting of its Burial Regulations in order to be able to provide a cost effective and safe service and environment. The only memorial stones allowed are pillow type and these are placed on a concrete plinth provided by the Council. This allows the immediate erection of memorial stones. The traditional headstone is not allowed due to health and safety reasons.
