Gillingham cemetery
Gillingham’s cemetery.

With Gillingham’s cemetery nearing capacity, the town council is asking landowners to contact them if they have suitable land available for a new cemetery.

Gillingham Cemetery was opened in 1890 and is the resting place for over 4,000.

In 2015 the Town Council removed paths to create additional burial plots, however the majority of these areas are now full, and the Town Council is now looking for land to create a new cemetery.

Ideally, the council is looking to purchase a piece of land approximately 4 acres in size and away from a watercourse.

The council says is keen to hear from landowners who may be able to help.

For further information please contact Julie Hawkins, Town Clerk on 01747 823588.
