Topsham Cemetery will host the latest in a series of open mornings in Exeter’s cemeteries on Tuesday, April 6.
People will be able to search grave records and arrange appointments to be shown the locations of graves. They can also find out more about the services on offer at the city’s cemeteries, such as natural burial, memorial trees and benches and gardens of remembrance.
Cllr Kevin Mitchell, lead councillor for Environment and Leisure said: “Our open mornings so far have proved very popular. Many people come to locate and visit old family graves. Others want to see the improvements we have made to the cemetery and to find out about services such as gardens of remembrance and natural burial.”
The open morning will be held from 10am to 1pm in the chapel at Topsham Cemetery, Elm Grove Road, Exeter. Open mornings will also be held on the first Tuesday in May at Higher Cemetery and in June at Exwick Cemetery.
