Notes:

Human Tissues and Organs

Fees charged for the burial or scattering of remains held under the Human Tissue and Organ Act, released by hospitals, will be charged at the Councils discretion dependent on casket/coffin size and depth of the grave

Interment Fees – Incorrect Coffin Sizes

Additional 30% surcharge to Funeral Directors.

10′ Graves

Only existing pre-purchased graves to this depth will be allowed. Pre-purchased 10′ graves are only available in certain sections of Beeston cemetery. ~Interment rate for 2 caskets at same time is 1.5 times the standard rate. # A temporary grave marker will be provided free of charge on all graves which do not already have a wooden cross or other memorial, indicating the name of the deceased present on the grave.

Grave Transfer Fees

If the grave owner is alive and submits a request, then there is no charge.

Coffin Exhumation

The cost depends on the location, depth and soil conditions. It is based on cost of works plus 20% administration fee.

Extra

Charges for Non-Residents are double those of residents (except in cases of Council Tax payers who have become Non-Residents due to ill health or infirmity) This is only applicable to those who have been non-residents within 5 years.  This charge applies to the fees for the purchase of the grave space and also the interment.  Proof will be required for this to apply

When two sets of ashes are being interred at the same time then the charge will be 1.5 times the standard rate.

There will be a surcharge of 30% applied to any interment, where the actual coffin size is smaller than that submitted, resulting in unnecessary and excessive soil being excavated and handled.

A charge for cancellation of a burial within 48 hours of the funeral will be applied.  This will be the interment rate for the cancelled burial.

A temporary grave marker will be provided free of charge to all new graves which do not have a wooden cross or other memorial with the name of the deceased present on the grave.

The definition of persons 17 years and under includes Stillborn (after 24 weeks gestation) and Non-Viable Foetus. Pre 24 weeks gestation, will incur full adult chargers.

Extra charge for Burials scheduled for after 14.00 on a normal working day, or who arrive after 14.30, or the coffin is committed to the grave after 14.30 will incur an extra charge of £180.00 (except when direct to a pre-excavated vault at Chilwell Cemetery)
