The number of burials a grave will take is dependent on each cemetery and different soil conditions.


All new graves are usually for two coffins, although in some areas of Chilwell, Stapleford and Beeston it is possible to have a grave for 3 coffins. Grave spaces are allocated for up to four persons at Beeston Cemetery and up to three at the other cemeteries, where soil conditions permit. For more information please contact Bereavement Services.
