Curbar Burial Ground

The Curbar, Calver and Froggatt Joint Burial Committee, which was formed in May 1969, will cease to exist on 31st March 2021 and the management of the Burial Ground in the future will be undertaken by Curbar Parish Council. This change arises as a result of government legislation requiring burial committees to come directly under the control of a host council which in this case will be Curbar Parish Council.

Curbar PC has always owned the burial ground, although it has been managed separately by the Curbar, Calver and Froggatt Joint Burial Committee for the benefit of the residents of Curbar, Calver and Froggatt since 1969.

This change will make no difference to residents' entitlement to be interred in the Burial Ground.

Many thanks must go to David Nicholson, the Chair of Curbar, Calver and Froggatt Joint Burial Committee, who has been invaluable in enabling the necessary changes to be brought about.
