Churchyards have been a focus for our communities for centuries. They are often a haven for wildlife and the Suffolk Wildlife Trust has produced guidance on how to manage your churchyard.
Most churchyards remain open for full burials. Relevant forms and information can be found below.
- Churchyard Rules | PDF (size and form of headstones). Headstones that fall outside these rules will require a faculty with no guarantee that permission will be given.
- Introduction of a headstone | PDF
- Completion Notices | PDF
Some PCCs allow individuals to reserve gravespaces. Details on this can be found below.
More people are choosing cremation rather than traditional burials. The DAC has produced guidance below.
Please contact the DAC Secretary for more information.
