Norse Road Cemetery
The area of the Cemetery at Norse Road is
approximately eight hectares. It is laid out in sections which are
bounded by either drives or footpaths. The main section where the
majority of burials take place is in the centre of the site. A
"lawn section" method of maintenance is enforced, i.e. graves are
marked by back to back headstones leaving room for mechanical
mowing of grass between memorials.

southern Europe. We also provide concrete Burial Chambers which are
similar to a normal interment, except that the grave is lined by
the chamber and part of it is above the ground, where a number of
memorial options are available. Norse Road Cemetery has
developed a new section with various above ground chambers now
available such as Mausoleums, Side Loading Mausoleums and Burial
