An undertaker plans to open a new 17-acre cemetery in a Nottinghamshire village.
Independent funeral director AW Lymn has submitted plans to Gedling Borough Council for its own cemetery.
This will be the first cemetery belonging to the group.
AW Lymn hopes to develop land off George’s Lane, Calverton, into a traditional, natural, woodland cemetery, complete with a facilities building and car park.
The site covers 27 acres, 17 of which will be used as burial space.
Pete Clarson, Commercial Director at AW Lymn, said: “We plan to create a multifunctional cemetery capable of supporting a variety of burial options, respecting the character of the site’s rural context and enhancing the potential of the wildlife site. ”
If planning permission is granted, a visual screen will be constructed as a barrier between a golf course and residential buildings.
“This is the first cemetery that the Lymn Rose family business will own, which is a significant milestone for us,” Clarson added.
“We are constantly looking for ways to extend our service offering to those in the area and this cemetery would do just that.”
