Cemeteries

Nelson cemetery

On Walton Lane in Nelson, this cemetery has been open since 1895. It includes a chapel of rest for funeral services, and a Muslim burial section.

Burials

Grave spaces can be purchased in advance. Our grave rights last up to 99 years and grave spaces can hold up to 2 coffins or up to 8 sets of ashes.

We offer vaults or walled graves within all our cemeteries, which are concrete or bricked chambers with space for two coffins. Again, the burial rights will last up to 99 years and the graves can be pre-purchased. We need at least 4 working days notice for a vault and 3 for a walled grave before the burial.

Memorial wall

Ashes in a suitable container are placed into a niche in the wall. A green slate plaque is placed onto the niche with your chosen inscription.

Memorial trees

You can choose from 26 types of tree. Up to 4 lots of ashes can be buried underneath the tree. You can have a memorial plaque at the foot of the tree.

Ashes chambers

There are modern chambers just below ground which can hold up to 4 lots of ashes, making this an ideal family plot. Each chamber is covered with a black granite memorial stone with your chosen inscription.
