Glossary

Common Graves

Common graves where the Company retained legal ownership of the grave space and which have no headstone, and grave spaces which were subject to a complicated option to purchase which in many cases was not exercised. The latter class of graves was sometimes inaccurately described as leasehold but they were not leasehold within the strict legal meaning of the term, that is the grant of an exclusive right to the grave space for a term of years.

Forfeit Graves

Similarly grave spaces subject to an option to purchase which was not exercised were misleadingly referred to as forfeit graves.

Freehold Graves

Existing graves fall into three classes, namely what historically have been called freehold graves that is grave spaces granted in perpetuity
