The Parish Council received further guidance on April 8th from the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) in accordance with the Local Government Association (LGA) and The Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM).  Closure policies have now been considered in greater detail by these organisations and advice is that Cemeteries in England without Crematoria may remain OPEN.
