Pre-purchasing a grave space at the Lytham Park Cemetery is a simple matter. All we require is the full name and address of the grave purchaser and payment of the current fee (see below). There will also be an interment fee for every interment in the grave.
New graves can accomodate 2 full interments or 6 cremated remains caskets. Cremated remains caskets may be buried in a grave after the full interments have taken place. Once a cremated remains casket has been intered no further full interments can take place in that grave.
There are three main areas for new graves within the Cemetery. The areas are described as Church of England, Non-Conformist and Roman Catholic. But any person, of any religion, can be buried in any section.
Families or individuals can choose which section where the grave will be but the exact grave space will not be allocated until the time of the first burial. This will normally be the next grave space on the row currently in use. Where two or more graves are purchased together the grave numbers will not be allocated until the time of the first burial, but the graves will be together.
All new grave spaces are of the ‘Lawn Type’ and only headstones are allowed on these graves. Memorials must be of natural stone and not exceed 3ft (914mm) high, 3ft (914mm) in width and 1ft (305mm) in depth. No wooden memorials are allowed on any grave space and no planting is allowed in the main area of the grave. All memorials must be fixed to withstand a testing pressure of 70lb (35kg) at the top of the memorial.
