In June 2020 planning permission was granted to the Town Council to build a new civic burial ground on part of the open space adjacent to the existing church burial ground which has been closed to new burials as it has reached full capacity.

In June 2021, construction started on a new stone wall and paved path to match those on the existing burial ground.  These works are largely complete however the contractor will return in early September to widen the access to the church burial ground and level the path.  It is hoped that the burial ground will open in Autumn 2021.

Council is drafting rules and a scale of fees for burials and interments of ashes.  These documents will be posted here, when available.
