Burial Ground

The Parish Council burial ground is located at the churchyard at All Saints Church, Christian Malford.  It was opened by the Parish Council in 1960 when the churchyards became full and were closed to new burials.  It adjoins and is continuous with the old churchyards and can be identified by the close spacing and modernity of the memorials.  Maintenance of the closed churchyards and burial ground, including grass mowing, hedge cutting and fencing, is carried out by the Parish Council.

At the Parish Council Meeting on 12 January 2021 it was resolved to suspend reservations of plots due to the limited number of plots currently available. In March 2021 we had a Tier 1 Groundwater Risk Assessment carried out to investigate the potential to extend the Burial Ground further to the west and we are putting together costings for this expansion.

It will be necessary for us to strictly adhere to the Eligibility Criteria for requests for burials in unreserved plots for the time being.
