The Parish Council are continuing to look at a new cemetery site adjacent to the existing Churchyard at St.James Church and working with the Church and the Diocese in looking for a solution to the repair/replacement of the Edwardian Wall which is considered as the best access pathway to the new cemetery. Further updates will be available in future newsletters and on the Parish Council website at www.nortoncanesparishcouncil.co.uk


The Parish Council have been working on the new cemetery Project for sometime. The outcome of the Public Consultations was that the residents of Norton Canes wished to have its own cemetery located near to St.James Church.

The testing of the site has now taken place and it has been confirmed that the site can be used for burials. The Parish Council are now looking at the most appropriate pathway for access to the new site.

The proposal for the new pathway will be put before the Parochial Church Council in July 2017 and following the outcome of that meeting the Parish Council will decide the next steps for this Project.

If you have any queries relating to this Project please contact the Parish Clerk on 01543 276812 office hours Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or alternatively email: nortoncanesparishcouncil@live.co.uk
