Cemeteries and funerals - burials
How we provide this service
General information on burials is supported by Environmental Services, Neighbourhood Services.
It is often assumed, quite wrongly, that funerals can be completed only with the use of a funeral director.
Although a funeral director will be invited to organise the majority of funerals, some people prefer to organise funerals themselves. The details in the individual sections of the Charter for the Bereaved gives sufficient information to achieve this. More detailed leaflets giving you local information on arranging a burial or cremation are available from:
