Burial Ground

The Parish Council owns and maintains the burial ground which is off the A49 just north of Hereford, HR4 9RG.  The burial ground is open at all times and is sensitively managed as a place of peace and quiet reflection in a pleasant rural setting.

The Parish Council has been responsible for the management and upkeep of the burial ground and garden of remembrance since 1908 and holds records of burials and interments since that date.

Should you have any enquiries, or wish to make a reservation of a burial or cremation plot please contact the Parish Clerk.
