How to pay

To purchase a burial plot, ashes interment, memorial or any of the above, please follow the instructions on the relevant form and make a bank transfer. If you have any issues or questions about making a bank transfer, please call us on 01600716438 or email us.

If you are planning ahead and pre-purchasing a plot, you can either pay in full, or we offer a standing order monthly payment scheme.

Paying by standing order

If buying in advance, you can spread the cost over ten or twenty months by instructing your bank to make regular monthly payments – either via standing order form or set up regular payments using your online banking app.

There is an extra £65 charge for this option, to cover the additional bookkeeping involved. If you would like to pay via standing order, please inform us when applying.
