If you are arranging a funeral for a person of Muslim faith, you can choose a Muslim burial area in un-consecrated ground. We ensure the body is placed so the head is facing Qibla.
We have a marker at the cemetery with an arrow pointing towards Qibla, showing the direction in which the graves are aligned.
The following options are available:
In the interim, you can hire a temporary grave surround(pdf, 73KB).
The frame can be placed on the grave approximately two months after the burial has taken place and can remain on the grave for subsequent years at a reduced fee. The Cemetery Office will advise you on the cost of this at the time of your enquiry. You may prefer to provide your own surrounds although it should be no larger than 6’6 long x 2’6 wide and made of a sturdy material.
