The Public Health (Interments) Act 1879 is passed by Parliament, setting out the regulations for the construction and operation of mortuaries and cemeteries and giving local authorities responsibility for running burial grounds.
Rectory Lane Cemetery is now open to the public. Due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, we have cancelled a number of events planned for this year. We will keep everyone informed of any changes in the coming months through our Facebook page. Thank you to everyone for your continued support for this project.
