Doddinghurst Parish Council manages the burial ground for the Village which is situated to the North West of All Saints Church. The Church's own burial grounds to the front and rear of the building are closed to new interments. The Burial Ground is managed as a "Lawned Cemetry" and the regulations relating to this type of Burial Ground are given below. The burial plots are double (depth) plots and the deed of grant is for 30 years.
Information about the Burial Ground a full plan and plot assignments can be found below, along with a Notice of Interment form to download.
Please note the fees and charges are revised annually from the 1st April. If, for any reason, the current financial year is not displayed please contact the office.
Following the meeting of the General Purpose Committee, held on 17th February 2014, it was agreed that a formal ashes lawn would be created alongside Ashes Plot 1, near the central pathway, (see burial ground layout), to enable residents to be able to scatter human ashes.
The scattering of ashes is unrecorded and no fee applies. However if a memorial plaque is required they can be provided on the circular memorium. Please contact the office for details and the fees payable.
Please note the Ashes Lawn is intended only for the scattering of human remains. The Burial Ground is not licensed by the Environmental Agency for scattering, or burial, of pet ashes in the burial ground.
Please note there is no connection whatsoever with Doddinghurst Funeral Services.
