Purchasing a Grave
The exclusive rights of burial can be purchased for a full grave plot or a cremation plot for a 100-year period. It is important to note that the right to bury in a grave is purchased and not the land itself, which remains in the ownership of the council.
At the end of the 100 year period the rights to the grave revert to Arnside Parish Council.
• the grave may not be opened/re-opened for burial or interment of ashes without your permission
• a memorial may be fixed on the grave and altered or added to only with your permission
Purchases can take place through your chosen funeral director or through the Cemetery contacts. Please refer to our published charges.
These are graves where no rights to the grave have been purchased i.e. there is no right to use the grave for further interments and a permanent memorial may not be erected.
