Garden spaces

We welcome garden spaces in front of the headstones of graves; the rest of the grave will be grassed over. Having a garden space is optional and if you decide to have one, the family and the grave owner are responsible for taking care of the space. If you decide not to have a garden space, we can turf over the area. The rest of the grave will be grassed over. We ask that this area remains clear so that we can maintain and cut the grass and areas around each grave.

If you would like a garden space for traditional grave,a lawn style headstones can be erected at the head of the grave which allows a garden space with a maximum size: 0.76 metre (two feet six inches) wide and 1.52 metres (five feet) length this is left for planting bedding flowers or small shrubs.
