Crawley Borough Council has agreed to build the town’s new cemetery at Little Trees near Tollgate Hill.
The 12-acre site, which is on council-owned land adjacent to the A264 Crawley South West By-Pass, will provide enough cemetery space for up to 50 years.
Residents, faith groups and community groups are now being given the chance to have their say on the layout of the new cemetery.
Proposals have been drawn up showing the location of various types of burials on the site – in phase one and when the cemetery is complete:
The council would like feedback on these plans and you can share your views by completing an online questionnaire .
The consultation will run until 8 March 2015.
As well as having your say online, drop-in sessions have been arranged for Thursday 19 February 2015 to ask questions and discuss views with council officers. These events will take place at:
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
10am – 2pm Friday
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.
