Cemetery Management

Lawn Cemeteries

Harborough Distict Council (HDC) operates a lawn-type grave management system within the cemeteries it is responsible for.

All Current and new sections in cemeteries are managed as 'lawn cemeteries'. Graves in these sections are set out with headstones only allowed at the head of each grave for ease of access to grave spaces and ease of maintenance. The grassed areas will be maintained at the Council's expense.

The height, style and design of memorials are restricted and kerb sets/ kerb stones and other forms of ornamentation are no longer allowed to be erected upon the grave space.*
