Exhumation

There are many reasons for the removal of a buried person from a grave (Exhumation). Families now move home with greater regularity and would like to be near their departed loved ones, or possibly wish to change their choice of cemetery.

This procedure is quite a specialised one. Once the decision is made to exhume we liaise between the family and the relevant authorities. (Local Council, Health Officer and Cemeteries).

A licence must be applied for and the exhumation must take place within six months of receipt. Re-burial at another cemetery or cremation being the most likely destination.

We at Griffin's have vast experience in this field, having completed many large projects in recent years.
