Clitheroe Cemetery

Purchasing graves

We receive many enquiries from families about whether it is possible to buy graves long before they might be used. In recent years, it has become more acceptable to talk about death and funerals and as most funeral directors now provide a pre-paid funeral plan, it seems sensible to purchase the grave at the same time. This can be done by calling into the cemetery office in Clitheroe, where the staff will be pleased to assist you with any queries which you may wish to discuss. Payment for the grave should be made at this time and grave deeds will then be issued as proof of ownership.
