Due to a large number of unauthorised memorials that have been placed on or around graves in the lawned areas of Runcorn, Widnes and Halton Cemeteries, Halton Council is advising grave owners and leaseholders that unauthorised memorials will be removed as part of the ongoing commitment to improve safety within the borough’s cemeteries.

If you would like more information about this, or the cemetery rules, please contact the cemetery office by email cemeteryenquiries@halton.gov.uk  or by writing to: Cemetery Office, Picow Farm Depot, Picow Farm Road, Runcorn, WA7 4UB.

The cemetery rules can be found on our website https://www3.halton.gov.uk/Pages/BirthsDeathsMarriages/haltoncem.aspx
