All those who live within the benefice are welcome to have their ashes interred. Those outside the benefice, but with a strong connection here, are permitted to inter ashes at the discretion of the Rector.

Ashes are interred loose (i.e., not in a container), and will be placed within a specially dug small grave (i.e., not ‘scattered’)

Other local cemeteries – Enquiries need to be made to the relevant parish or town council:
