Exclusive right of burial
You can also buy the exclusive right of burial for a grave, which means you decided who can be buried there.
Headstones and memorials
You may decide to put up a headstone or other grave marker. You will need to apply to us for the ‘right to erect a memorial’ which costs £236 for a headstone. It’s free for our baby gardens.
Sometimes it can take a while to make and inscribe a headstone. You can buy a 1-year temporary grave marker from us for £66.
We are members of BRAMM (British Registration of Approved Monumental Masons) who have an approved register ensuring all stonework meets the BS8415 standard.
There will be additional costs to change the headstone because of another burial in the grave, or for repair:
- To add an extra inscriptions: £87
- To change or replace a headstone: £117
- To remove a headstone: £125
