Cemetery

Cemetery services

We own and maintain Hinckley Cemetery on Ashby Road in Hinckley.

We encourage a high standard of maintenance within the cemetery and are always seeking to improve our service and facilities to the bereaved. We maintain all graves as part of our general management of the cemeteries.

Cemetery chapel

The cemetery chapel may be used for services, with the fee chargeable as stated in the current fees and charges.

There is an organ available to use. The organist or any other music is to be arranged by the Funeral Director.

Memorial benches

We can arrange for the purchase and installation of memorial benches. The placement of benches is restricted to certain locations within the cemetery.

Memorial trees

We can arrange for the purchase and installation of memorial trees. Prices can be found in our current fees and charges. The placement of trees is restricted to certain locations within the cemetery.

The book of remembrance

The Book of Remembrance room is opened at the same time as the gates. Inscriptions can be put into the book by contacting the cemetery office. The book has a page for each day of the year and the page is turned daily. Relatives can also leave flowers in the room where flower vases and stands are available for their use.

We are responsible for:

  • Maintaining statutory records relating to burials
  • Providing information regarding location of graves and dates of burials
  • Co-ordinating the service between funeral director and cemetery staff
  • Allocating grave spaces, location of spaces for re-use, reserved grave purchases
  • Approval of memorials and added inscriptions

If you wish to discuss this or have any other queries with regards to the cemetery, please contact the Cemetery Office on 01455 255707.
