An overview of Bereavement Services
Bereavement Services are responsible for the operation of the cemeteries at Alston, Appleby, Garrigill, Nenthead and Penrith. It is our intention to offer a quality service, with a high standard of care, to ensure everyone in the community can arrange funerals which are meaningful to them and their families. We have adopted the Charter for the Bereaved, issued by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management. The Charter is a commitment to improving the service and spreading knowledge and information about the arrangement of funerals.
