The death of a loved one is a distressing experience. The purpose of the Cemetery Policy is to provide guidance and support families with both the initial and the long term care of their loved one’s grave space in the Lawn Cemetery. It ensures visitors and those who maintain the Lawn Cemetery are kept safe. Printed copies of the Policy are available from the Parish Clerk.
The Deed of Grant is an important legal document, that confirms you are the current legal owner of the grave and this should be stored in a safe place. Ownership of an Exclusive Right of Burial does not imply ownership of the land itself or the right to carry out any particular activity on the grave plot. The land is still owned by Stowupland Parish Council. Where an Exclusive Right of Burial has been granted in respect of the grave and a request is made to prepare it for a burial, the Deed of Grant will be issued. The deed of grant lasts for 75 years.
