Machynlleth Cemetery Survey 2017
In November 2017 we sought your views on the future provision of a cemetery for the town. The current Victorian cemetery is nearly at full capacity with two years of burial space left.
We asked for your views on two potential sites:
- Land behind the Plas
- Land at Machynlleth CP School
There was also scope:
- To look to build a new cemetery in an outlying area
- For residents to use alternative private churchyards for burials
- For residents to travel to Newtown for future burials
|You Said||We Will|
What's our legal role?
Local authorities have a duty under the Local Authorities' Cemeteries Order 1977 to maintain existing cemeteries but not to build new ones.
