    • Funeral - burials

      Craven District Council manages Skipton Cemetery located at Waltonwrays Cemetery on Carleton Road in Skipton and Ingleton Cemetery. Services for burial can be held in the multi denominational chapel on site.

    • What can I place on the grave?

      Relatives may wish to carry out planting on the grave and to maintain it themselves, in which case the Council will prepare the grave space for this purpose. Alternatively, the Council can provide and plant summer and winter flowering plants on your behalf.

    • What happens to the grave following the burial?

      Following an interment the ground will continue to settle for six months. As soon as practicable the grave will be levelled, grassed over and maintained by the Council with regular grass cutting.

    • What happens when the owner dies?

      When the grant owner dies, the Right of Burial will pass to the heirs of the estate. To enable the transfer of ownership to be arranged, the heirs of the estate should notify the Council in writing. It is strongly advised that the grave deeds be transferred, as this will avoid difficulties in the future if the grave has to be re-opened or an inscription is to be added to the memorial.

    • When do I receive the Grave Deed?

      After the purchase of a new grave, the person nominated as the grave owner will receive the document, called the 'Grant of Exclusive Right of Burial' within six weeks of the purchase. This Grant or 'Grave Deed' reserves the owner the right of burial in the grave specified.

    • When I purchase the grave, do I own the land?

      No, the popular belief that the land itself is purchased is incorrect. The purchaser acquires the exclusive right of burial in the grave but the land and the responsibility for its management remains with the Council. The exclusive right of burial is for 30 years, which can be extended for a further period of time once this has lapsed.

    • Where can I get further guidance on cemetery matters?

      We acknowledge it may be difficult for bereaved relatives to appreciate the above, but it is important for a grave owner to have this information available.
