Buy a grave plot

Grave plots are usually bought as required. However it is also possible to purchase the Exclusive Right of Burial - effectively reserving a plot in advance, although availability of such plots is limited.

Once purchased, you have the exclusive right to be buried there at any time over the next 75 years. That right can only be transferred to someone else with your written permission. If the plot is not used during the 75 years, then an extension can be bought.

Choosing your plot

Please contact us to discuss your needs and to arrange to visit a cemetery to choose your plot.
