The new Penn Road Cemetery in Hazlemere was officially opened earlier this week, marking the completion of the project which first started back in 2017.
Dev Dhillon, chairman of Buckinghamshire council, and Sarfaraz Khan Raja, the chairman of Buckinghamshire council’s High Wycombe Town committee, opened the new cemetery.
The cemetery will be operated by Buckinghamshire Council as a combined cemetery provision alongside High Wycombe Cemetery.
Mark Winn, cabinet member for homelessness and regulatory services, said: “I would like to thank the High Wycombe Town Committee for the role they have played in bringing about this much needed community facility.
“The scope of the project was to create an attractive and appropriate cemetery that met a wide range of community needs. The tasteful design of both the building and landscaped gardens provide a tranquil and calm setting for people to say goodbye to their loved ones and to visit to be close to them.”
