CementaryProcedure & application to reserve a grave space

An application to reserve a grave space for burial in the churchyard of the Parish in which you live can be made by completing a Faculty Petition Form. Part A of the form must be completed by the applicant. Your Minister or a Churchwarden will complete Part B which must detail the row and number on the churchyard plan or a sketch showing the exact position of the plot to be reserved.

Once the form is completed, it should be sent to the Registrar:

Jeremy Wilding
Registrar
Gabbs Solicitors
14 Broad Street
Hereford
HR4 9AP

Once received, the Petition will be sent to the Chancellor. He will request that Public Notices are published at the church for a period of 28 days, thereby giving notice of the application being made and an opportunity for objections. If no objections are received, the Chancellor will grant the Faculty.
