As members of the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM) our cemeteries are managed in a legal, sensitive and respectful way for all that use them. These are communal spaces for quiet reflection and remembrance.
The cemeteries service is compliant with the Local Authorities’ Cemeteries Order 1977 and other relevant statutory guidelines. As a burial authority constituted under the Local Government Act 1972 we are responsible for regulating and managing five cemeteries across the district.
It is a lawful requirement that we set out regulations to provide a safe and appropriate environment for all visitors.
