Purchasing a grave

If you would like to purchase a grave in Tamworth at the time it is needed, this can be organised with the help of your funeral director as part of the funeral arrangements, or directly with our cemeteries department. Plots can also be purchased in advance, with exclusive rights of burial (EROB) for 50 years.

Please note only one grave can be purchased per person or couple, which can be full-size or half-size. Most full-sized grave spaces are suitable for one or two full interments and at least eight cremated remains. Half-sized grave spaces are suitable for up to four cremated remains and infants.


If you wish to exhume a grave, please get in touch using the details at the bottom of the page for more information about the process.

Grave search information

All our old burial records are held on Microfilm in Tamworth Library, Corporation Street, which can be accessed free of charge. Please contact Tamworth Library directly.

For information about burials in churchyards, please contact the church.

We can also help you locate a family member’s grave. We’ll need as much information as you can give us, such as their name and approximate year of death. There is a small charge for this service which is non-refundable if we are unable to locate the grave.
