We hold and maintain the records of all past and present burials that have taken place in each one of our cemeteries and maintain 12 closed churchyards in the Bassetlaw area.

We do our best to make these environments as pleasant as possible, the mature woodland at Retford Cemetery in particular is beautiful the whole year round.

We also offer a Woodland burial service at both Hannah Park and Retford whereby we will plant a tree on the plot and place a memorial plaque on an adjacent wall as a more sensitive approach to remembering our loved ones.
