In order to maintain high standards on all the graves and cemeteries in general, we need the co-operation of everyone involved, especially grave owners.
All monuments, memorials, wreaths, plants and all other items placed in the cemetery are the responsibility of those that do so. The council does not accept responsibility for the repair or maintenance of such items that do not conform with the regulations, for instance, erected on approval and made of natural stone.
To keep the cemetery safe for staff and visitors alike we reserve the right to remove any unsuitable material on or around a grave as well as any tree or shrub that is obstructing a grave, memorial or pathway. The council reserves the right to recover from the grave owner any costs involved in making safe.
Do not place any glass items on graves as when they freeze they break in to pieces and the shards are very hazardous.
Ensure you read the guidelines relating to memorials, their correct dimensions and what you are allowed.
This guidance also forms the ongoing regulations in force.
