Visiting the cemetery - parking details and how to gain vehicular access.

Charnwood Borough Council Traffic Wardens are visiting the lay-by outside the cemetery regularly and issuing parking tickets. If you have a blue badge you may park there provided you show your badge and are visiting the cemetery.

Both large gates now have coded padlocks on them. Each entrance has a side gate which is not locked. The code can be obtained from the Clerk, The Registrar for Burials, The Clergy or any Parish Councillor.

If you use the code, please remember to scramble the number afterwards.

Please note that we will not change the code without informing you. Sometimes the rain gets in the padlock and causes it to be a little stiff.

Further information can be obtained from the Registrar for Burials, Hannah Shaw. Email: clerk@newtownlinford.org.uk or telephone 01530 249945
