Burial and Cemetery Information
There are two burial sites within the Parish of Rotherfield:
- ST DENYS' OLD BURIAL GROUND
St Denys old burial is only available for people with relatives already buried in the cemetery and who wish to be buried together in an existing plot .
- ROTHERFIELD PARISH CEMETERY (ALSO REFERRED TO AS "HORNSHURST BURIAL GROUND" OR THE "NEW BURIAL GROUND").
This is the cemetery where most people on the Parish are buried. The Parish Council have been implementing a number of measures to improve the lower field at the cemetery to ensure that in the future it is suitable to be used as a continuation of the current cemetery, for future generations of the parish who may wish to be buried there.
In addition there is also a dedicated area for the internment of ashes which has been created alongside the hedge bordering Eridge Lane and Memorial Plaques may now be added to the side wings of the Remembrance Wall.
