There are two main types of funeral: burials (interments) or
cremations. A third choice is the
donation of the body for research or education; details of this can be obtained
from any medical school but must be made in advance.
Burials at Westbourne Cemetery are available to anyone who
has either purchased a grave space (plot) in advance or at the time of need
when arranging a funeral. Additionally,
subject to certain conditions, interments are available for those who have
legally inherited a grave space with remaining Exclusive Rights of Burial. Grave spaces can be purchased in advance by
contacting Westbourne & Southbourne Joint Burial Committee (tel: 01243
373667 or firstname.lastname@example.org
who will discuss your requirements and explain the available options. Purchases made at the time of need are
usually arranged through a Funeral Director although individuals can of course
choose to make their own arrangements.
