Cemetery regulations

We are responsible for providing regulations for the management and administration of our cemeteries.

Our regulations are designed to inform and provide guidance to all who have an active interest within our cemeteries.

The regulations also establish rules and codes of conduct inline with statutory burial law.

Our cemeteries are managed in accordance with the Local Government Act 1972 and the Local Authorities' Cemeteries Order 1977.

The regulations apply to all our cemeteries, including ones which are currently closed.

These regulations were approved by our Cabinet on 5 April 2017.
