Temporarily suspension of pre-purchase of graves in Hollesley New Cemetery

At their meeting in December 2020, HPC decided to temporarily suspend the pre-purchase of grave plots in the New Cemetery. The reason for this is that a number of plots have recently been purchased by young people; possibly as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic; these plots will conceivably not be used for decades to come. If this practice continues, it may be the case that, in the near future, families of residents who have passed away may find that space is limited.

The family of any resident who does pass away or who has a terminal illness will be exempt from this new ruling and the Parish Council will make a permanent ruling on the pre-purchase of graves during 2021.
