The Parish owns the Cemetery in Station Road. It is managed and maintained by the Parish Council who employ a regular contractor for grounds maintenance and commission tree works as necessary. Grave rights holders are responsible for looking after individual plots.
There is space for both full burials and the interment of ashes (but not scattering of ashes). Preferential rates are charged for parishioners and for those who have previously lived here. For interments or the reservation of plots, please contact the Parish Council office. Jane Porter, Parish Clerk 743706 email@example.com
The Chapel of Rest is available for small services through the tenant, Neville Funeral Service, who lease it from the Parish Council. Following their recent redecoration of the building and the refurbishment of the original Arts and Crafts furnishings, the chapel makes a suitable venue for those wishing to hold both a small service and an interment at the Cemetery.
Please contact Neville’s for details (click here to see their advertisement on page 16 of the Ashwell Yearbook 2021).
Members of the Parish Council are always pleased to receive suggestions or observations to help us in the management of the Cemetery.
