Cemetery - Report 1919

The Cemetery in 1906

The quarterly report of the Cemetery Registrar was received, from which it appeared that there had been 41 interments during the quarter, four of which were non-parishioners. Fourteen grave spaces bad been purchased and three reserved for a period of 14 years. The total receipts for the quarter had been £63 19s. 0d., and no fees remained unpaid.

The Committee considered the report very satisfactory.

The Surveyor was instructed to have laid out the unused portion of the Cemetery, and for this purpose to advertise for men at the rate of 1s. 1½d. per hour.

The report was adopted.
