Should you wish to make a grave selection, an appointment may be arranged by contacting the Bereavement Services Team on 01622 602656 or by emailing the Cemetery office.

Grave selection depends on availability and personal choice. There are three options:

  • Lawn graves, for people wanting just a headstone memorial
  • General graves, for people wanting larger memorials
  • Cremated remains plots, for people wanting to put ashes in a grave and have a memorial on the plot. This option is not available at Vinters Park Crematorium.
