Roe Hill: old cemetery

The Parish Council runs the cemetery at the top of Roe Hill.

Graves can be reserved by contacting Clerk; a fee will apply.

Woodborough Cemetery fees, to apply from April 1st 2023.

The Council wants the cemetery to be a place where people can come and pay their respects and reflect on the life of their loved-ones in a peaceful country environment. Everyone is different and the bereaved remember their friends and family in a variety of ways. The Council must be sensitive to the wishes of all our visitors and is committed to keeping the cemetery grounds tranquil, respectful and uncluttered.

The Parish Council has compiled a list of regulations that govern the cemetery.  Local funeral directors and stonemasons are familiar with the regulations. These regulations give details of the maximum permitted dimensions of memorials and provide information about the type of tributes which may be left. The Council will remove any items that do not comply with its regulations. As part of our gardening and maintenance procedures, we will remove old floral tributes and seasonal decorations unless prior arrangements have been made with the Clerk.

The first burials took place in the front of the cemetery in November 1879. An extension to the burial ground was first used in 1977. In 2011, the Council successfully purchased a plot of land to extend the cemetery still further. This land is currently being cleared and prepared for burial use in some 5 to 10 years.

Please contact the Clerk with any queries regarding the cemetery or burial records.
