CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Burial boards were established by the Burial Act 1853 to allow parish vestries, borough councils or local boards of health to create and manage new cemeteries. From 1894, civil parishes and urban district councils could exercise the powers of Burial Boards by purchasing land to provide burial places. St Martin's Joint Burial Board, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, became St Martin's Joint Burial Committee following the Local Government Act 1894. In 1988 responsibility for the Committee was transferred to Haverfordwest Town Council. Narberth Joint Burial Board was formed in c. 1857 and continued to operate into the 20th century.
