TOWN CEMETERY SET FOR EXPANSION

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A TOWN council in the Moorlands is planning to extend a cemetery due to the decreasing amount of space there currently is. Cheadle Town Council plan to increase the land available for burial at the cemetery located on Park Lane, enabling more families to lay their loved ones to rest in the town. The council bought additional land adjacent to the current site five years ago for this purpose, costing around £60,000.

Cheadle Town Mayor councillor Ian Plant told the Times and Echo that he hopes work on the extension will start within the next year and that the council may opt for a lawn cemetery.
He said: “We purchased land about five years ago to extend the cemetery.
“This cost around £60,000. In the last few years we have been running short on space and are running out of room for graves.
“They can’t go anywhere else in Cheadle, so we are making more room.
“The land needs straightening but hopefully within the next 12 months, work will get underway to get it extended.
“The council are leaning more towards a lawn cemetery.”
