Hadley Cemetery is situated in Hadley Park Road, Hadley and is owned and managed by Hadley and Leegomery Parish Council. A full table of fees is available on this website (see below), from local Funeral Directors and Memorial Masons, or direct from Hadley and Leegomery Parish Council.
The Cemetery was opened in 1902, and the Council often receives enquiries from people who are tracing their family history. There is a non-denominational chapel in the cemetery which was restored in 2006 and may be used for funeral services.
The Council employs a full time Cemetery Manager who looks after the cemetery. All enquiries should be directed to the Cemetery Manager in the first instance, at the cemetery during normal working hours (9.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m. Monday – Friday) either by personal visit or telephone on (01952) 223418.
Spaces are allocated in the cemetery for full interments and for burial of cremated remains. Arrangements should be made through a funeral director in the first instance. Burials take place between 9.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. on Monday to Friday. If you would like a burial to take place outside these hours or at weekends every effort will be made to meet your requirements, although additional fees will be payable.
The Council will try to provide the bereaved with as much flexibility as possible in the choice of memorials and other items that will be permitted in the cemetery, but the Council also has to consider the overall appearance of the cemetery and balance the practical requirements of maintenance and the safety of its staff and members of the public. The Council therefore publishes a formal policy relating to memorials and other items that are permitted, and a copy is available on this website (see below).
To ensure that all memorials are safely installed to standards set by the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM), the Council operates a registration scheme for memorial masons who wish to carry out installations or work on memorials in Hadley Cemetery. To become registered the Memorial Masons must show that they meet those installation requirements, that they have adequate public liability insurance and that they offer suitable guarantees of their products and workmanship. A list of Memorial Masons who are currently registered to work in Hadley Cemetery is available on this website (see below). Inclusion in this register does not imply any recommendation by the Council of a particular firm. If you wish to instruct a Memorial Mason who is not currently on the list, they can apply to the Council at any time to become registered.
