Cemetery

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. The scattering of ashes in this area does not convey any Exclusive Right of Burial.

The Council endeavours to ensure that the Cemetery is managed as an area of tranquility for remembrance of the people whose remains have been placed here.  We seek to have a generally harmonious appearance for the whole Cemetery and to avoid the placing on graves of unusual or inappropriate items that appear out of keeping with the overall state of the Cemetery.

Opening times.

The cemetery is open daily. The car park gates are open from 8.00am to 4.30pm from October to March and from 8.00am to 8.00pm April to September. Pedestrian access is unrestricted.

The cemetery car park is for the use of visitors to the cemetery only. Unauthorised parking may be subject to wheel-clamping. All persons visiting the cemetery should act in a responsible manner whilst in the grounds.

A Cemetery Pack can be obtained from the Cemetery Office at the Parish Council - alternatively the relevant forms and literature can be downloaded below.

For any further cemetery information or for records on existing graves please contact the Parish Clerk on 0116 2876985.
