The Council shall not be responsible for any discrepancies, errors or omissions in any notice of interment. Any form of religious service may be used, but any other ceremony is subject to the approval of the Council. Alternatively, the coffin may be committed without a service.
No funeral can take place without a “Certificate for Disposal” (Green Form) or the “Coroner's Order for Burial”. The appropriate documentation must be provided to the Parish Council Office 2 working days before the interment can take place.
Failure to provide the necessary documentation will result in the delay of the burial until the certificate is produced and no interment will take place unless the certificate for disposal is available.
The hours appointed for interments shall be 10.00am until 3.00pm daily between May and October and 10.00am until 2.30pm between November and April on weekdays, not including Bank Holidays.
Saturday, Sundays and Bank Holidays can be arranged at the discretion of the Clerk, but will incur an additional fee of three times the normal interment charge.
