Westbourne and Southbourne Parish Councils exercise their
joint burial authority powers through Westbourne & Southbourne Joint Burial
Committee with Southbourne Parish Council as the ‘host’ authority for
administrative purposes. The Joint
Burial Committee comprises four elected members from each Parish Council. The Committee is responsible for facilitating
the burials which take place at Westbourne Cemetery, maintaining the cemetery
and cemetery buildings, the rental of Cemetery Lodge and the upkeep of cemetery
records. Meetings of the Joint Burial
Committee are held at least four time per year.
The Agenda and Minutes of the Joint Burial Committee meetings
can be found on the agenda and minutes page of this website.
Westbourne & Southbourne Joint Burial Committee operates
from the Cemetery Office within the Southbourne Parish Council Offices which
are located at Southbourne Village Hall, First Avenue, Southbourne, PO10 8HN.
