A standard burial site can generally accommodate up to three adult coffin burials, one above the other. Up to six sets of ashes can also be interred into the one grave – allowing for 9 interments in total. Families wishing to have the option of having up to three people buried in the one grave site should advise their funeral director at the time of the first burial. Once a grave has been dug to a certain depth for one burial it cannot be made deeper for any future burials.
