Wickhambrook Cemetery …
The death of a loved one is a traumatic experience. For those who have not had to sort out funeral arrangements before, the question arises; What do I have to do?
The simple answer is : get in touch with a Funeral Director. There are several well-established firms in Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Haverhill – some of whom advertise in the Wickhambrook Scene.
The Funeral Director will ‘undertake’ all the arrangements, giving you advice on such matters as:-
Do you wish for a Burial or a Cremation?
Would you like a Service in one of our local Churches ? (They are all willing to provide this – the Minister or Vicar would come to see you)
Would you like a burial in our local cemetery or elsewhere ? (This includes the interment of cremated remains).
The Funeral Director will make arrangements for the burial with the Parish Council, who are responsible for the Cemetery. (Burials in Churchyards are controlled by the Churches).
Full details of the Wickhambrook Cemetery: Fees and Regulations (The Local Authorities’ Cemeteries Order 1977 (No 204)) can be found below. This provides detailed information about headstones, right of burial, plots, fees, flowers, etc.
