   Revision of Groby Village Cemetery Guidelines    10 October, 2012

The Parish Council have produced a "Cemetery Information Pack" that provides you with useful information respecting Groby Village Cemetery, including fees, pre-purchase of burial plots, regulations governing the cemetery, as well as additional leaflets concerning "What to do when someone dies" and "FAQ about burials and cremations".

Groby Parish Council act as the burial authority for Groby Village Cemetery. The Council prides itself in managing and maintaining an essential amenity.

The Cemetery is a place of rest for both grave and cremation interments and is an amenity provided by the Council for the benefit and use of the inhabitants of the Parish. The Exclusive Right of Burial is solely for the use of people who at the date of death were ordinarily residents in the Parish of Groby.  However, if the deceased has recently moved away through illness or for nursing home care, they may (at the discretion of the Parish Council) be buried in Groby Cemetery.

Ashes, including those of non-Groby residents, can be scattered within The Garden of Remembrance (completion Spring 2013). The scattering of ashes in this area does not convey any Exclusive Right of Burial. 

Further information and links can be found under Services - "Cemetery".
