A 20-ACRE site on the edge of Huddersfield has been identified as the ideal spot for a new municipal cemetery.
Officials have chosen a field at Fenay Bridge after looking at several locations.
Natural burials will also be on offer at the site.
The land, which is off Fenay Lane, has been picked as plots run out at other burial grounds.
Steve Noble, Kirklees Council's assistant environment director, said: "Together with the plans we have to expand our Slaithwaite burial ground, this should serve the needs of Huddersfield for many, many years."
Work at Fenay Bridge could begin in 18 months to two years' time, with the first burials taking place three to six months later.
Mr Noble said it would be a multi-faith site without a chapel.
The site is in council ownership and was let to a tenant until recently.
A council cabinet committee is expected to approve the choice next Wednesday.
Planning permission would be required before work could go ahead.
About 4,000 people die in Kirklees each year. Some 80% are cremated and 20% buried.
Councillors are also set to approve a new crematorium in the grounds of the existing one at Dewsbury.
The plans include improved car parking.
Other changes being recommended include major roof repairs and improvements at Huddersfield Crematorium.
There are also proposals to repair walls and improve paths at a number of cemeteries across the district.
