Funerals and cemeteries

You can find information about registering a death on the Lincolnshire County Council website. You cannot finalise the date for a funeral until you have registered the death. The date may also be affected if the death has to be reported to the coroner.

Please use the following links to view information about what to do after someone dies and repatriation of a deceased body.

We do not offer green burial provision, but further information can be found at Green burial.



We are responsible for cemeteries at School Lane, Springthorpe and Legsby Road, Market Rasen.
