Cemetery Regulations

To receive a verbal update from the Chair/Deputy Town Clerk.



The Committee received a verbal report from the Deputy Town Clerk.


Members heard that since the change in Cemetery Regulations agreed by this Committee in October 2022, an issue regarding one of the changes had arisen in respect of pre-sold funeral plans by one or more of the local funeral directors.

2.      That, a burial of ashes be allowed at Windrush Cemetery outside of regulations and,

3.      That, Officers further investigate this issue and report back to the next meeting of this committee on 5 June.
