Skelton Cemetery

A Skelton Parish Council owned cemetery is situated approximately one mile Northeast of the village of Skelton on Moor Lane.

Applications to use the cemetery should be submitted to the Clerk.

Buying a Burial Plot

Burial plots in Skelton Cemetery are all single plots. If families wish to be buried in adjoining plots, they are advised to reserve an Exclusive Right of Burial in the required plots. Please note that the land remains in the ownership of the Burial Authority.

Exclusive Right of Burial

The Exclusive Right of Burial provides a lease of a burial plot or cremation plot in a cemetery or garden of remembrance for 50 years. After this period has ended the lease can be renewed by the grave-owner for a fee. Where an Exclusive Right of Burial has expired, Skelton Parish Council will try to contact any next of kin or descendants before issuing the Right of Burial to someone else. It is the responsibility of the Certificate owner to inform the Council of any change of address.
