13 Jun Works to extend Corby’s Shire Lodge Cemetery coming to completion
North Northamptonshire Council was granted planning permission to extend Shire Lodge Cemetery and we are pleased that works are now nearing completion.
The existing cemetery boundaries have been extended to the south-west to create additional burial plots and space for memorial gardens and religious faiths. The site, which will be complete towards the end of June, is largely laid out as a lawn cemetery.
North Northamptonshire’s Executive Member for Growth and Regeneration, Cllr David Brackenbury, said:
“Thank you to residents for their support whilst these necessary works have been carried out at the cemetery. It is thanks to their patience that we have been able to extend the site so that those who have sadly passed have an appropriate resting place, as well as giving their loved ones somewhere peaceful to visit and pay their respects.”
Leader of North Northamptonshire Council, Cllr Jason Smithers, said:
“The extension to the cemetery grounds was welcome news and I am pleased that work is now coming to completion. Thank you to the contractors who have worked in a respectful manner throughout with as little disruption to users of the cemetery as possible.”
