TO RESERVE AN INTENMENT PLOT

Pre reservation includes the plot of land (assigned at time of burial). A non-refundable reservation fee will be payable to the burial authority. There will be a balance payable to the burial authority on the difference between the reservation fee (at date of reservation) and the internment fee (charged at the time of burial). Graves / Ashes Plot are dug at double depth allowing for two interments, except the Glades single interment only. The reservation will normally last for a maximum of 10 years. The owner will be contacted after the ten year period to ascertain whether a further reservation period is required, there is no additional cost to renew the reservation period. Failure to respond/renew reservation the plot will revert back to the burial authority. This is to avoid blocking spaces in the burial grounds for unduly long periods of time. The Applicant purchases the rights to that burial site therefore becoming the burial rights holder. The land remains in the administration of Great Yeldham Parish Council. However, only the burial rights holder can authorise burials and memorial additions.
