The petitioners, who were husband and wife, applied to reserve a double depth grave in the churchyard. The petitioners were not residents of the parish, but were on the church electoral roll. Several parishioners objected to the reservation, claiming a widespread view that there had been a policy against reservation of graves agreed by the Parochial Church Council many years ago. The Chancellor found that in 1999 the PCC had agreed on a policy regarding the burial of persons who did not live in the parish, but the policy did not cover the reservation of graves. He accordingly granted a faculty.
