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.

The Town Council will now seek tenders to construct a new stone wall and paved path to match those on the existing burial ground.

Council is drafting rules and a scale of fees for burials and interments of ashes.  These documents will be posted here, as will regular updates with progress on construction.
