Attention of Funeral Directors, Memorial Masons & Private Individuals using cemetery forms:

As from 25th May 2018 this legislation comes into effect and for example Cemetery Interment forms updated with GDPR MUST BE USED. Thank you.
Grant of Rights (Grave Deeds)
Should you own a grave at Almondsbury Cemetery whether it is earthen or a cremated remains grave and you no longer wish to keep it, then please contact the Cemetery Clerk by email providing a copy of the said deed. The Almondsbury Joint Burial Committee will then purchase your grave from you at the price you paid for that particular grave plot.
Notice to Memorial Masons
Please note we will not accept applications for a new Memorial headstone or Tablet at the site of an Earthen Grave until after 12 months following an interment to allow the ground to settle.
Parish Office Refurbishment
Almondsbury Parish Office is being temporary located to an alternative venue whilst the current office undergoes renovation (for several months).
This means currently the Office IT systems will be down until further notice, with the exception of email. The cemetery email remains operative via remote access.
However, there will be in addition disruption to the office telephone and therefore the following number is to be used as an alternative to the Almondsbury Cemetery contact number - 01454 201935. Mr Moss contact number remains unaffected.
Please accept our apologies during this transitional period and I thank you for your understanding and patience.
Please note that until further notice:
New interments at the cemetery – both burials and cremated remains will only be permitted if the deceased resided within Parish, namely Almondsbury and Patchway.
This rule does not apply to existing owners of pre purchased graves and who reside out of Parish.
There are no pre purchase options (Grant of Rights) of graves within the cemetery and this rule applies whether you live in or out of Parish.
