Houghton Town Council Cemetery Designs


The Houghton Regis Town Council say they are keen to hear your views on the design of the new area within the Houghton Regis Cemetery.

The public consultation runs from 14th to 31st January 2019. The public responses are to be considered by the Council's Environment & Leisure Committee on 25th February 2019 at 7.30pm, Peel Street Council Offices, Houghton Regis. Members of the public are welcome to attend this meeting.

There is limited space left within the present cemetery near Cemetery Road. The Town Council have been meeting and working on designs to make additional provision.

It is intended to create an attractive and peaceful area whilst providing residents with a variety of options for ashes memorialisation.


With this design, the council will only be offering above ground options for ashes. This is to take full advantage of the space available to ensure that families and friends have memorialisation opportunities in the future within Houghton Regis.

A statement from the Town Council on 14th January said, “The council really do appreciate the demand from residents for burial and interment options below ground to be provided in the longer term within the town. Whilst there are many hurdles, please be assured that we are working to provide residents with this facility and we hope to consult with you shortly on this.”

Your thoughts on the design and your thoughts on the memorialisation plans are sought. Please have your say by printing off the consultation forms and returning to Town Council at Peel Street, Houghton Regis. Forms should also be available at the Council offices.
