Bishopstoke Parish Council


Bishopstoke Cemeteries

Bishopstoke Parish Council is responsible for running Bishopstoke Cemetery. It is situated on the edge of Stoke Park Woods, and was first opened by Eastleigh Borough Council in the mid 1950s, with the first burial taking place in November 1958. The total area of the cemetery is 1.2 hectares and it has areas for both religious and non-conformist interments, as well as special areas designated for cremated remains.

The housing development known as The Chase is rapidly taking shape next door, and as a result of that development, a second cemetery will soon be handed over to the Parish Council. This will be known as Stoke Common Cemetery. The cemeteries are on Sewall Drive which is off Stoke Common Road (opposite Jockey Lane, which has the approximate postcode SO50 6DX). Sewall Drive has the postcode SO50 6JE but this postcode may not yet be recognised by navigation aids.

All the relevant forms and fee information can be found below, or should you wish to speak to someone in person, then please contact the Assistant Clerk, Mrs Cheryl Taylor, who can be emailed, or reached on 07521 735539.
