Crawley Borough Council has agreed to build the town’s new cemetery at Little Trees near Tollgate Hill, and has submitted a planning application to convert the site.
The 12-acre site, which is on council-owned land adjacent to the A264 Crawley South West By-Pass, would provide enough cemetery space for up to 50 years.

Crawley Borough Council owns and manages Snell Hatch Cemetery, The Dingle, West Green, Crawley RH11 7JB. The car park entrance is accessed from Goffs Lane.
The cemetery is open every day (including weekends and bank holidays) between these hours:
9am – 4pm October to March
9am – 7pm April to September
The cemetery is open for burials on weekdays:
10am – 3pm Monday to Thursday

Snell Hatch offers the following choice of graves:
All new graves are in the lawn section. Memorials allowed are headstones at the head of the grave. The rest of the grave is grassed. There is a small area either side of the headstone where summer and winter bedding may be planted.
A new section of the cemetery has been set aside for the burial of cremated remains. Concrete kerbs allow two bronze plaques to be fixed and a memorial vase placed. Unfortunately no other memorials or tributes are allowed.
A section has been set aside within Snell Hatch Cemetery for burial of people of the Muslim faith.
All the original burial registers are kept at the Town Hall and may be inspected by appointment. The cemetery was first used for burials in 1925.
