Exclusive rights of burial

Those who wish to do so can buy the rights to the grave, otherwise known as the exclusive rights of burial. This allows you to choose who can be buried or scattered in your particular plot. The Exclusive rights of burial lasts for a period of 100 years.

After this period the rights will need to be renewed or the plot will become the property of the Borough of Charnwood and we will decide who will be buried there. The exclusive rights need to be purchased before any memorials can be placed.

Please note that pre-purchasing of exclusive rights is no longer permitted.

Choice of graves

There are different types of grave plots available:

  • Type A: These are earthen/vaulted graves where a full kerb memorial surround can be placed.
  • Type D: These are on the lawn section, located along a continuous concrete beam housing headstones and flower containers.
  • Type C: These are child graves.
  • Type E: These are for the burial of cremated remains. Each plot can accommodate up to five caskets of cremated remains.

Each grave can be excavated to accommodate up to two burials. Up to six ash caskets can also be interred after the second burial. Traditional Muslim graves are excavated for one burial.

Seats and trees memorials may be purchased through the cemetery office. These will be installed within the cemetery with a brass remembrance plaque.

Burial records

All records relating to burials and grave plots are held in the cemetery office at the council offices. Searches will be carried out on request. If a lot of information is requested a charge may apply.
