Cemetery Burials

Interments are usually acceptable in any cemetery, however should you not be a parishioner of the required cemetery then there is usually a higher charge for the burial, maybe sometimes double that of a resident. All cemeteries are different in their ruling of who they encompass as non parishioner and if a person has only left the area within the past 12 months, for instance to go to a care home, then usually the authority will allow them to qualify as parishioner. Most cemeteries are governed by the local town council but some are simply extentions of curerent churchyards that have become full and would therefore be unbder the control of the church.

Churchyard burials

Interments are available within churchyards, space permitting and are at the decretion of the ministry of the church in question. Plots are usually available only for parishioners of the village or those with a strong family connection to that location, such as living there previously and having generational ties to the area or family members already buried in the churchyard. It is always advisable to seek guidance and advise from the relevant church committee, diocese and ministry to evaluate the criteria applicable and we can gladly assist you in this.

"Wowser! 2nd time round the service is ...

... still impeccable. We used Turner's for my mums funeral and sadly now my dads funeral. Their care, attention to detail and the general wellbeing of our group was part of the 1st class service. Special thanks, Lydia on the day was so professional and organised."

Nothing was too much trouble for them and their ability to listen, make us laugh and make the whole process easier, it was amazing. Lydia, Mal and everyone there are the most amazing people and we will never forget their kindness."
