Burial charges

About burial fees

Everyone must pay a burial fee, unless it says that the fee won't be charged.

The burial fee includes all employee charges and administration costs.

Burial fees are listed for burials in purchased and unpurchased (public) graves for up to 2 burials.

Buying a grave is an extra cost on top of the burial fee. You can find out more on the Buying a grave (exclusive right of burial) page.

We also use the word 'interment' on this page, which is another word for burial.
