Burial and Memorial Fees

Payment grants exclusive rights of burial for a period of 75 years.

A burial plot cannot be used exclusively for the interment of ashes.

Stillborn babies, babies and children under 18 years will incur no charge.

The following fees, payments and sums are doubled where the person to be interred or in respect of whom the right is granted, is or was, immediately before death, not an inhabitant of Deeping St James, unless evidence can be produced to the satisfaction of the Clerk that such person had been an inhabitant during the immediately preceding ten years.
