Churchyard regulations

Our parish churchyard is a beautiful, peaceful location for the burial of residents of Graffham over many years. The character of a Church of England churchyard is preserved by attendance to certain regulations which the families and friends of departed loved ones are required to observe, for everyone’s benefit. Please honour these requirements to avoid any need for enforcement which may cause distress. See below for some important points to note:

The following are not permitted in Church of England Churchyards:

Kerbs, railings, fencing or chippings

Memorials in the shape of vases, hearts, open books

Memorials incorporating photographs or portraits

Mementoes, windmills, toys or animals

The use of ‘pet’ names

Artificial flowers

Please do not use glass or other breakable containers which can break and cause a danger to those cutting grass in the churchyard.
