Burial Information

A grave, known in Scotland as a 'Lair' can be purchased anywhere in the Scottish Borders for interment, as long as the cemetery has as enough grave space not yet used. The 'Title Deed' exclusive rights of each lair is currently in perpituity. NOTE: The Scottish Government is considering changing the specifications from later in 2018.

This cost allows the Lairholder the right of burial, although Scottish Borders Council owns the land outright. Scottish Borders Council administers the sale of lairs as well as the maintenance and upkeep of the land that constitutes the cemetery.

Any tilting headstones are the responsibility of the Lairholder to rectify, at their own cost.
