The cost of a cemetery plot

Please read the following about eligibility to purchase a grave burial plot.  The Council amended their burial policy on 23 February 2021 when it was agreed that:

  • A (grave) burial plot for interment may only be purchased for the burial of a deceased resident of the parish OR for a deceased person who otherwise had a close association* with the parish of Nettleham, at the time of death. 
  • At the time of that purchase or within 1 calendar month thereafter, they may purchase an adjacent (grave) burial plot for the future use of a resident of the parish, OR for a person who otherwise has a close association* with the parish.
  • Please note:  *Close association is to be taken as: a partner, parent or child.
  • Cremated remains plots can, however, be purchased for the interment of the ashes of a deceased resident or non-resident, as required.
