These regulations relate primarily to all churchyards and to other consecrated ground associated with churches. However, consecrated portions of burial grounds established by cemetery companies or by local authorities are also within the jurisdiction of the Consistory Court for certain purposes, and therefore clergy who are concerned with interments of remains in such grounds should ensure that these Regulations are understood by the legal personal representatives and undertakers involved.
