Consecration ceremonies at cemetery extensions

The Bishop of Repton, the Right Reverend Malcolm Macnaughton, has performed consecration ceremonies at new extensions to our Bakewell and Steeple Arch cemeteries.

He was accompanied by Ian Blaney, Derby Diocesan Registrar, and Councillor Steve Wain, the District Council’s Civic Chair, who formally presented the consecration petitions on behalf of the Council.

Other district councillors also attended along with representatives from local town and parish councils, local clergy and members of the public, including families whose loved ones are buried at the cemeteries.

A consecration ceremony also took place on the same day on a new section at Brassington's cemetery, which is operated by the parish council.
