The Council aim to the keep the grounds as pleasant as possible with regular cutting of the grass , weather permitting.The area around graves is to be kept clear so as to allow the Handyman to complete this task for the benefit of those visiting .The burial ground is a place for loved ones to remember and reflect and as such we ask visitors to refrain from letting dogs off leashes .

The Burial Ground has an area for burials and a separate area for the placing of Cremated remains known as the Garden of Remembrance.

All plots are allocated in numerical order and are for a duration of 60 years.

We are currently in the process of building a new Garden of Remembrance as we currently have about 6 plots available on the existing grounds, we are also looking to do some work around the existing plots to tidy up any weeds and place some fresh pea gravel around as over the years this has become to look a little untidy. The Lyche Gate also requires some improvement and during 2020 we intend to arrange for the trees to be cut around it , the roof , Gable ends and guttering to be repaired and the woodwork to be repaired and cleaned then repainted. There also a few other minor works to carry out including cleaning of benches where neccessary. A small tree was also donated by the ladies of the Wi and planted to replace one which had died.
