Things to consider before you arrange the funeral
If they are going to be buried do they own a grave in the cemetery or a churchyard?
The grave ownership will go automatically to the executors of the will, regardless of whether the grave was left to a named person in the will. If the executors would like to take on ownership, they would have to come to the crematorium office with a copy of the will and fill in a statutory declaration form. This service costs £62.00.
If the executors don't want the grave, or only one executor would like to take ownership, they would have to fill in a form of renunciation and a statutory declaration form. This service costs £62.00.
If you need further help with this, please contact our crematorium office on 01744 677406.
