PLEASE NOTE:

COFFINS/CASKETS:

Ash Parish Council Cemetery Charges state that the maximum coffin/casket size per plot is 710mm (28 inches) wide, x 1980mm (78 inches) long, and special regulations and charges relate to the use of coffins/caskets in excess of these sizes.

Any coffin/casket in excess of the stated sizes will require the purchase of two or more grave spaces depending on the maximum dimensions, and the Parish Office should be consulted in these circumstances, before any burial is arranged.

In very few cases we may be able to accommodate coffins/caskets up to 760mm (30 inches) wide x 2030mm (80 inches) long, which will incur a surcharge of 100 per 25mm (1 inch) over the regulation size. Such plots are few and far between and again the Parish Office MUST be consulted prior to any burial being arranged.

These rules apply to new purchases and to previously purchased plots.

BURIALS

No burial in Ash Cemetery will be confirmed by the Parish Office until coffin/casket sizes are advised by the funeral director in writing, fax or email.

Please continue to provisionally book by telephone with the Parish Office, so that dates, times etc can be pencilled in. Faxed or emailed confirmation will be issued to the funeral director from the Parish Office as soon as written details of coffin sizes are received.

Any changes to coffin sizes after the first written confirmation is received will incur an administration charge of 50.00 and may require the purchase of additional grave spaces.
