Our communities value our shared public spaces and facilities, and we should all be able to enjoy them while being respectful of others.
After recent vandalism, we're restricting vehicle access from 4pm to 7.30am each day until further notice.
Please be alert, and if you see suspicious behaviour, contact the police immediately.
Plots are booked by size (single or double) and by the type of memorial plaque (monumental, lawn).
Garden and monumental plots available. Cremation plots can have two or more interments of ashes, but are limited by the size of the memorial plaque. You can inter in an existing family plot.
