Closure of St Michaels' Graveyard to New burials

The PCC applied to the Ministry of Justice earlier this year for St Michaels’ Graveyard to be closed to new burials as it is now considered to be full. 

 Existing graves and vaults may still be used. 

The MOJ have agreed, but prior to presenting this to Privy Council, we have been asked to make details available to parishioners. 

Full details relating to exceptions may be found by downloading the document below.
