Burial in a Churchyard

Who Can be Buried in a Churchyard?

To be buried in a particular churchyard or burial ground a person may have to either live within the parish or be on its electoral register at the time of their death.

The local vicar or priest will be able to tell you if the person is entitled to be buried there and if they have a grave space reserved.
