The Parish Council maintains both the cemetery at the rear of the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul and the now closed cemetery in Marlow Road.
The cemetery under the management of the Parish Council comprises a number of areas:
The churchyard (has been completely closed to new burials for many years)
The churchyard extension (now full)
The parish cemetery
Burial plots are only available to parishioners or former parish residents.
No pre-purchase or reservation of plots is permitted.
Any person whose name appears on the Register of Electors, or is eligible to appear on the Register, as well as their children under the age of majority, may be interred in the Burial Ground on payment of the appropriate charges.
Parishioners who had left the Parish for a care home will remain eligible for 10 years.
Former parishioners who have already acquired burial rights to a double grave will remain eligible
Cremation plots are in the Churchyard Extension which is administered by St Peter and St Paul's Church. Please contact the South
