Regarding each cemetery your council manages and/or owns, could you provide the following information
- Do you have any rules or regulations regarding maximum coffin size for burial (width and length) and if so what are they?
- Do you have any rules or regulations regarding maximum burial plot size (width and length) and if so what are they?
- We accept standard size coffins to fit in 4ft wide by 9ft long graves, however an additional fee is charged for casket/non standard size coffins.
- All burial plots are 4ft wide by 9ft long. In one Cemetery due to the nature of the ground all double depth graves are now 9ft. long and 5ft wide, this is to ensure that the graves do not collapse.
