The burial of cremated remains takes place in the grassed area in front of the memorial. The plot allows up to two interments of cremated remains. You may wish to have the cremated remains buried in a casket or buried loose. You could also use the eco box provided by the crematorium.
The memorial is made of black polished granite and allows for an inscription of up to 120 characters. This memorial must be purchased through the cemeteries office. The inscription is sandblasted and gilded.
If you do not use the entire face of the memorial for the first inscription, you will be able to add an inscription if a second burial of cremated remains takes place. The cemetery office can obtain a quote on your behalf or you can contact a mason of your choice. If no room for a further inscription had been left, the cemetery office will provide you with a quote for a new memorial showing both inscriptions.
A flower container is provided with each memorial (we do not allow other flower vases, pot plants or memorialisation). The responsibility of maintaining the memorial is that of the owner. However, as the memorial is made from polished granite, little maintenance is required. To keep the memorial clean, you will just need to wash it down occasionally with clean water.
To apply to bury cremated remains, download the application form for burial in a new grave(pdf, 97KB), complete it and send it to the cemetery office. We will hold the form until a mutually convenient date and time can be arranged. For a second burial in an existing unit, the application form for burial in an existing grave(pdf, 122KB) should be completed.
