Pleasington Cemetery: new cemetery extension

A new scheme to extend the cemetery is expected to start on site in the new year.  The scheme will comprise the mechanical levelling of a field to the rear of the Crematorium building to allow for grave plots for approximately 10 years and the construction of an associated access road.

We will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum whist the construction is in progress but access for construction traffic will be via the cemetery.

This information will be updated when the programming of the works is known.

For any enquiries please contact us.
