Grave Spaces for coffin burials and Ash Interment (Ash Caskets may be interred, but only after a coffin burial has taken place)
The Woodland Walk for Ash interments (ash caskets are not permitted)

The Glade - Scattering of Ashes - this is the only service that is available to non-residents of Birstall
