The final two acres of land within Great Malvern Cemetery were consecrated this morning (Wednesday 25 October 2017), in a ceremony led by Assistant Bishop Rt Rev’d Michael Hooper.

Assistant Bishop Michael consecrated the land, which is now set apart forever for interment according to the rites of the Church of England, in the presence of: his Chaplain Stuart Currie, the Mayor of Malvern Cynthia Palmer, Councillor Ian Hopwood, Town Clerk Linda Blake, Operations Manager Charles Porter, and Office and Operations Coordinator Lyndsey Davies.

Great Malvern Cemetery has been in use since 1861. The consecration of this final piece of land will expand the life of the cemetery by 25-35 years.

The Mayor of Malvern, Cllr Cynthia Palmer, said:

“This was a lovely service which perfectly befitted the occasion. The consecration of this land ensures that further generations can continue interring their loved ones in the beautiful Great Malvern Cemetery.”

Great Malvern Cemetery is associated with Caring for God’s Acre, a unique charity which aims to champion the conservation of churchyards and burial sites across the Country. Over 100 species of naturally occurring and rare plants have been recorded in the Cemetery.
