An extension to the North Weald Bassett Parish Council cemetery has been officially opened at a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Among the dignitaries at Wednesday's event were Deputy Lieutenant of Essex Rosemary Padfield, Essex County Council chairman John Aldridge, Epping Forest District Council chairman Dave Stallan, North Weald Bassett Parish Council chairman Alan Buckley, Epping Mayor Tony Church and Loughton Mayor Philip Abraham.

The original cemetery, which was previously farmland, was opened as a cemetery by the parish council in the late 1990s.

The extension - named Meadow Brook - is a full lawn cemetery.

The cemetery, next to St Andrew's Church, has sections for cremated remains and full burials as well as a garden of remembrance and a memorial garden.

The ribbon cutting was performed by Deputy Lieutenant of Essex Rosemary Padfield whose family farmed the land before it became the cemetery.

She said: "Over the years I have watched it develop into this tranquil setting we see before us today."

The ceremony ended with prayers led by Father James Rodley from St Andrew's Church.
