Village Cemetery

Cemeteries and churchyards are peaceful and tranquil places; somewhere to spend some quite time remembering loved ones. A place for reflection. A warm, welcoming place where you can sit quietly, alone with your own thoughts, or talk with others.

At Kirby Muxloe Parish Council, we pride ourselves on managing our local Cemetery in a caring manner.


Please be advised that as from 15th January 2015 Kirby Muxloe Parish Council do not accept full burials or interment of cremated remains of Leicester Forest East residents or any other non-residents of Kirby Muxloe into Kirby Muxloe Cemetery (Min ref Cou/ 155/14-15). All pre-purchased plots and existing plots will be honoured.

Memorial Safety Check and Repair

Who is responsible for maintaining the memorial?

It is the responsibility of the Exclusive Right of Burial Owner (the Deed holder) to maintain the memorial. If a problem arises with a memorial, we try to contact that person, asking him/her to attend to the repairs required. If they cannot be traced and the memorial is unsafe the Council will make it safe to fulfil our Health and Safety responsibilities. In such circumstances we would normally lay the memorial flat.
