FOI request (FOIR-129792541)
Requested Tue 09 July 2019
Responded Fri 19 July 2019
I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Please could you tell me the following:
- The current number of burial plots available within the Council sites?
- How many burial plots you have in total across the councils' sites?
- When do you estimate you will run out of available burial plots?
- Are there plans for any new sites?
Not all sections have been drawn up yet but we do have the last estimate which was 2012.
Traditional Graves - 1976
Lawned Graves - 3207
Natural Graves - 771
Cremated Remains Plot - 1834
We only have the one cemetery but our current burial rate we are using around 70-80 new full earth grave plots so at least 30-40 years of new ground to use.
We do not have plans in place for a new cemetery as of yet.
