Stanton Parish Council Cemetery is located off Bardwell Road, Stanton IP31 2EA.
The site is adjacent to the historic roofless St Johns Church. http://www.suffolkchurches.co.uk/stantonsj.htm
The Cemetery is open to the public during daylight hours every day of the year and visitors are welcome to enter the land to tend graves, to pay respects to loved ones or simply to contemplate or pray silently in the tranquil setting.
Parking and turning of vehicles in the site is strictly for the funeral cortege only. Visitors are particularly asked to ensure parked vehicles do not obstruct the Bardwell Road. There is absolutely no parking allowed on the main A143 road. Larger groups should consider parking on the Recreation Ground car park on Old Bury Road, IP31 2BX which is a short walk away across the A143.
Only dogs on leads are allowed in the cemetery. Visitors are asked to keep to the walks and to avoid damage to surfaces, plants, seats, signs and monuments and to the flowers and furnishings of graves. Please close all gates behind you. Children should be supervised at all times. It should go without saying that dog mess, litter and dead flowers should be removed from anywhere in the cemetery grounds and placed in the waste bin. Picnicking/camping, singing or the playing of music (except as part of funeral rites), the playing of games, horse riding and the use of any kind of guns or bows are strictly prohibited. Please help to promote a tranquil atmosphere in this setting and respect the feelings of others visiting the final resting place of their loved ones.
Water for flower vases may be obtained from the tap by the entrance to the St John’s Churchyard nearby. Please turn off the tap after use and replace any water carrier borrowed.
The Council asks all users and visitors to the new cemetery and St John’s Churchyard precincts to be on the alert for vandalism, littering and disrespectful behaviour and report the same as soon as possible to the Police or to the Clerk of the Council.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHURCHYARDS OF ST JOHNS AND ALL SAINTS ARE NOW 'CLOSED CHURCHYARDS' AND ARE MAINTAINED BY WEST SUFFOLK COUNCIL.
