Cemeteries and churchyards are peaceful and tranquil places; somewhere to spend some quite time remembering loved ones. A place for reflection. A warm, welcoming place where you can sit quietly, alone with your own thoughts, or talk with others.
At Kirby Muxloe Parish Council, we pride ourselves on managing our local Cemetery in a caring manner. Just as important is our determination that your dealings with us should be handled professionally nd sympathetically.

Who is responsible for maintaining the memorial?
It is the responsibility of the Exclusive Rights Owner (the Deed holder) to maintain the memorial. If a problem arises with a memorial, we try to contact that person, asking him/her to attend to the repairs required. If they cannot be traced and the memorial is unsafe the Council will make it safe to fulfil our Health and Safety responsibilities. In such circumstances we would normally lay the memorial flat.
