Capacity of a grave

A private grave will normally hold four adult interments. However, no guarantees can be made as ground conditions, particularly at Blackley Cemetery, vary from time to time and from place to place, affecting grave capacity. We do our utmost to dig the graves at maximum depth.

In a dedicated cremation plot, designed solely for cremated remains, six caskets can be interred.  In a burial plot, it depends on how many coffins have previously been buried in the grave.

Please contact the cemetery offices for further advice on grave capacity.
