Newark Cemetery improvements, including a new digging machine and pick-up truck, are set to cost more than £92,000.
Nearby residents can view plans for a cemetery extension before Wednesday’s town council planning meeting.
Newly-approved changes include eight additional rafts for monuments, and an extended roadway.
It is hoped the extension, at the Thoresby Avenue end, will provide burial space for another 20 to 25 years.
The council has also agreed to make two temporary staff permanent and to set up a grave-digging and ground maintenance team.
The staff were originally taken on to help cut the grass.
A grave-digging machine and a replacement pick-up truck will be bought for the graveyard at a cost of £37,000.
