Where to find us

The cemetery service delivers a professional and caring service; our priority is to ensure that all funerals are organised and conducted in a dignified and orderly manner.

A meaningful funeral is an important part of the grieving process and we recognise that each person's needs are different and our aim is to ensure that every funeral is as personal and unhurried as possible.
