Burial in a Cemetery

About cemeteries

Cemeteries are mainly owned by local authorities, although some are managed by private companies.

Although the ground is not consecrated and most are non-denominational, they will usually have areas dedicated to specific religions. There are also cemeteries provided for the exclusive use of other religious groups, such as Jews and Muslims. 

Who Can Be Buried There?

People have the right to be buried in the cemetery of the local authority in which they live. Those living outside of the area can be buried there too, but they may be charged a higher burial fee and space might be limited.
