The Cemetery’s Office is based at Thanet Crematorium and is open from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm Monday to Friday.  Please note the office is not open at weekends or public holidays.

The Cemetery Grounds and Remembrance Chapel will be open to the public daily from 9.00 a.m. until 6.00 p.m. (March to September), 9.00 a.m. until 5.00 p.m. (October to February) and until 4.00 p.m. on weekends, Bank or General Holidays.

Burials can take place between the hours of 9.30 am and 2.30 pm Monday to Friday. There is a small chapel at the cemetery which can seat 20 – 30 people.

There are no restrictions on the content of the service and can be either religious or non-religious depending on the wishes of the family.

There are facilities to play music from CDs and if required an organist can be booked.  We do request any down-loaded music is tested at the Cemetery prior to the service to avoid any disappointment on the day of the service.

Following a recent clearing programme new grave spaces are now available and it is possible to re-use previously buried in plots (which have not been used for a minimum of 100 years, and do not have a memorial).  Should you choose a burial plot at Ramsgate, please telephone us on 01843 577333 and we will arrange for a member of staff to meet you at the Cemetery to view plots available.

At the time of the first interment, a small stone will be placed on the plot stating the plot number and the surname of the deceased.

Purchasing a plot you would own the right to bury in that plot and be able to erect a memorial of your choice (please refer to the Memorials for permitted sizes).  Should you wish to erect a memorial, this can be carried out via a stone mason and would incur their charges.

In purchasing a burial plot you have the option to purchase the Exclusive Burial Rights of a plot in the Cemetery currently for either fifty years or seventy five years.  Therefore you will be the person responsible for the maintenance of the plot, the person to sign for any memorials placed on the plot and your permission will be required to open the plot at any time.  In the case of joint ownership, all owners will be required to give their consent.  Up to a maximum of four people may be joint owners of the EROB, allowing them all the automatic right to be buried in the plot (space allowing) and have equal responsibilities for memorials etc).  The deeds will then remain with the joint owners until such a time of the death of the last surviving person, then passing to their executor.  Please refer to the burial rights section for further information regarding transferring burial rights.
