CHALFONT ST. GILES PARISH COUNCIL
FEES FOR USE OF THE BOWSTRIDGE LANE CEMETERY
FROM 1 June 2016
New grave plots are only available to persons registered as resident within the Parish of Chalfont St. Giles.
A ‘Resident’ is either:
At the time of death the deceased was a resident of the Parish of Chalfont St Giles; or
The person owning or purchasing the burial rights (Deed Owner) is a resident in the Parish of Chalfont St Giles; or
In the case of a still born child, either parent is resident in the Parish of Chalfont St Giles; or
The deceased was resident in the Parish of Chalfont St Giles for five or more years but became a non-resident involuntarily (for instance to receive residential care in another area) during the period immediately prior to the date of death or had lived in Chalfont St Giles for at least 20 years.
The above fees will be tripled where a person is interred into an existing plot, is or was, immediately before his or her death, NOT an inhabitant of the Parish of Chalfont St. Giles. ( Except that the surviving spouse will be classed as resident for subsequent burial fees if the plot’s burial rights had been purchased by a resident, and it is the surviving spouse to be buried. )
No fee includes charges for labour, which shall be arranged by the person undertaking the interment.
