The Council manages and maintains the open Priorslee Road Cemetery, Priorslee Road, Shifnal, TF11 8AB.
Please be aware that, with the exception of Funerals taking place, ongoing maintenance works are likely to be in progress.
Visitors to the cemetery should also be aware that, due to the restricted space within the cemetery, it is sometimes necessary to use neighbouring plots to temporarily place excess soil. This soil is always removed on the same day where possible, and the neighbouring plots are left in a clean and tidy state. We apologise for this inconvenience and we thank you for understanding.
Burials are usually coordinated between a Funeral Director and the Town Council Staff. Please note that Shifnal Town Council does not have a Gravedigger and this would need to be arranged with the Funeral Director.
The Council has in place a set of Rules and Regulations relating to burial and cremation plots, we also have memorial regulations which apply. To obtain a copy, please contact the Town Council Offices.
Should you wish to purchase a burial plot or a ashes plot, please contact us
A copy of the Burial Fees for 2022-2023 is attached, as well as a copy of the Rules and Regulations for the Cemetery.
