Opening Hours

The burial ground itself is open from dawn until dusk, every day of the year.

Our office is not on site, but working hours are 9 - 5, Monday to Friday. Please feel free to telephone or email us, and we will be happy to answer any of your queries or arrange to meet. If you happen to telephone us outside of office hours, however, there may well be someone to pick up your call.

SunriseIN AN EMERGENCY don't hesitate to ring, using the mobile number if necessary:

0779 229 4414

Any messages left on the mobile will be picked up fairly quickly, although only urgent messages will be addressed out of office hours.

Instead of using the office which is in our own home, meetings are arranged at the burial ground itself. Within a certain radius, it may also be possible for us to come to your home to discuss your requirements, wishes or concerns. All paperwork can be done at the site, or - when time allows - you can take away the forms, go through them on the phone with us, or send them back to us when you've had time to ponder.

We are flexible as to the timing of funerals, particularly where religious traditions are concerned. There is, however, a surcharge for burials at weekends and on bank holidays, or where our grave digging service levies an extra charge.

Open Days are held in the early summer, and other events happen throughout the year: for more information, check our Activity Days page .
