Burial fees and charges

Cemetery fees and charges

1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021

All charges are exempt of VAT, unless otherwise stated

All fees must be paid in advance to the Cemeteries Manager

For the purpose of the cemetery fees a resident of the Borough of Runnymede is defined as living within the Borough or:

  • a former resident who left the Borough within two years prior to the date of death;
  • had been a resident for 25 years or more;
  • who left the Borough of Runnymede to live in a residential nursing home within three years prior to the date of death.

Note: when the deceased is a resident, and the purchaser at the time of the interment, is a non-resident, then the normal fees will apply for both purchase and interment. Subsequent use of the grave for a non-resident will attract the non-resident fee.

For all non-residents of Runnymede Borough, all purchasing fees will be trebled
