Cemetery Regulations


The following Regulations have been adopted by the Laceby Parish Council, in order to allow the Groundsman to keep the Cemetery tidy and presentable.

1.    A kerb may surround a single grave measuring 8 feet x 4 feet and may

       NOT exceed these measurements.  An application to the Laceby 

       Parish Council would be required for their approval.  A double width

       kerb may surround two graves set side x side – subject to approval by

       the Laceby Parish Council.

2.    Headstone height restrictions exist, and Stonemasons should be aware of these – please contact the Clerk for further details.

3.         No flowers or shrubs are to be planted on the grave. The Parish Council may permit early spring flowering bulbs, subject to approval.

4.    No glass vases of any kind are to be used at any time.  (Such receptacles create a danger to anyone working within the cemetery.)

5.    A maximum of 2 metal type vases for flowers are allowed per grave

       (this includes vases built into the headstone.)  

6.    Any person/persons not prepared to adhere to Rules numbered 2 

       through to 5 as above, will be held responsible for the maintenance

       of their relative’s grave.
