Burwell Parish Council Burial Ground

Located of Ness Road, on the western side of the village, the Burwell Parish Council Burial Grounds fees are fixed and settled under the Local Authorities’ Cemetery Order 1972.

The fees and payments set out below will be doubled where a person is not an inhabitant or parishioner of the Parish of Burwell, or where neither of the parents of a still-born child is such an inhabitant or parishioner. The term inhabitant shall be interpreted to include a person who at the time of death or some time during the six months immediately prior to death normally resided in the Parish of Burwell, or in special circumstances at the discretion of the Parish Council.

Burwell Cemetery – Important Notice

Following the consultation last year, the Cemetery Regulations have now been reviewed. The two main changes are that although it will remain a lawn cemetery, as it is now, there will be an opportunity to place plants and mementoes of your loved one, if wished, in an area of up to 18 inches in front of the gravestone. The second change is that the Exclusive Right of Burial will now be for 50 years (instead of 99 years) with an option to extend this time at a later date. A copy of the revised regulations is available below or a hard copy can be obtained from the Jubilee Reading Room. A copy will also be on display on the Noticeboard at the Cemetery.
