Cemetery

Frithwood Cemetery is located on The Frith, Brownshill. There is a limited number of burial plots remaining and only parishioners or those with a strong connection with the parish may be buried there. We no longer take reservations for burial plots.

Cremation plots may be reserved by parishioners. They are 18 x 12 inches in size and only commemoration plaques of these dimensions (laid portrait) are allowed.

 

Records

A record of all graves, reservations and plaques is maintained at the Parish Centre and is available for viewing by the public, by prior arrangement, free of charge during office opening hours.

Vehicles

Undertakers and mourners will be permitted to drive into the cemetery for the purpose of the interment. The full Cemetery Rules and Regulations can be obtained from the Clerk at the Parish Centre, but are also available in PDF format.  You can also view our Notice of Internment here.
