Clay Cross Cemetery

Clay Cross cemetary

Clay Cross Parish Council own and manage Clay Cross Cemetery, located at 1 Cemetery Rd, Danesmoor, Chesterfield S45 9RL.

In order to increase capacity of the Cemetery, Clay Cross Parish Council are reviewing a range of options; including diverting the combined sewer and surface water drains located in the Cemetery. Diverting these would create space for approximately 30 additional burials and prolong the lifespan of the Cemetery.

The Parish Council has contacted Yorkshire Water who have advised that the sewers are small diameter and they would in principle, allow the Parish Council, subject to a full application to Yorkshire Water and associated agreement, to divert the sewers.

In order to comply with the Parish Council's Financial Regulations the Parish Council are seeking quotations of potential suppliers of these services. Information with regards to how to submit a quotation and further information can be found on the Contracts Finder Service by clicking here

As from 1 November 2010 North East Derbyshire District Council adopted responsibility for Clay Cross Cemetery. The District Council staff are there to provide help to people wherever required and to maintain the Cemetery to the highest standards set by the Parish Council.
