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