RHOS Community Council is hoping an application to extend Rhos Cemetery will be granted.
Space is at a premium at the current site and it's expected there will be no burial plots available in just three years.
The cemetery is owned by the Community Council and the plot of land they propose to utilise is the former site of council-owned houses on Erw Las.
A planning application has been submitted to Wrexham County Borough Council and community councillors are awaiting permission to begin using the site.
The plot measures 6,700 square metres and it is hoped it will provide enough space for burials for the next 50 years.
Councillors have been working to secure additional burial land for the past six years.
Community council clerk, Wendy Owens, said: 'We had to go to the Welsh Assembly Government to transfer the use of land from housing to burial.
'It has been difficult to find a suitable site. We originally looked at using Stryt Las but the land was too wet and there were a lot of mine shafts.' The Welsh Assembly Government has initially approved plans for the cemetery, but councillors will have to seek further approval if planning permission is granted by Wrexham County Borough Council.
A decision is expected within weeks.
Mrs Owens said: 'I'm very pleased we are progressing, I don't know what we would have done, especially in light of the problems Wrexham is having with burial land.
'It has been a very long and drawn out process, but we're very glad it's coming to an end.'
