Blessing of the Extension at Dewstow Cemetery

Dewstow Cemetery is unique as it is the only municipal burial ground in Monmouthshire, which is managed by a Town or Community Council.  Other burial grounds across the County are managed by Monmouthshire County Council. 

The Town Council recognised the need for burial space within Caldicot, Church Yards had reached capacity and there were no cemeteries in the immediate area.  The field adjacent to the cemetery had been earmarked as a cemetery extension and over the past few years Caldicot Town Council had undertaken investigative ground work and surveys.


Planning permission was obtained in May 2018 and the Council have progressed significantly within the last year, initial works were undertaken and the extension has been levelled.  The whole area provides a natural continuation of the existing lawn area space.  There is space remaining in the existing cemetery area.  It is anticipated that the extension will provide approximately 400 additional burial spaces, in addition to cremated remains areas.
