Within the Cemetery Rules pack can be found the forms that can be copied to be used if a request is to be made to use the Cemetery. Any use of Watton Cemetery must be arranged through a funeral director and memorials can only be erected by an accepted stone mason.
Not within the pack is the form needed to request permission for an additional inscription which again would need to be completed with the assistance of a stone mason.
The Town Council endeavours to create a pleasant environment for all users of the Cemetery and it is hoped the area is respected by those who visit.
The Town Council regularly inspects the Cemetery but please help to keep the area a pleasant place by reporting any concerns you might have regarding the Cemetery to the Town Council Office.
