Fees You Must Pay
For an Attended or Unattended burial funeral, the burial fee.*
In this local area, the typical cost of the burial fee for local residents is charged at local cemetery rate.
For a new grave, you will also need to pay for the plot; for an existing grave with a memorial in place, you may need to pay a removal/replacement fee. In addition, the cemetery may charge a number of other fees. Please discuss any specific religious, belief-based and/or cultural requirements that you have with the funeral director.
*This fee (which is sometimes called the interment fee) is the charge made for digging and closing a new grave, or for reopening and closing an existing grave.
For an Attended cremation the cremation fee is that charged by the crematorium. Crematoria fees vary by crematorium.
This is a funeral where family and friends may choose to have a ceremony, event or service for the deceased person, but they do not attend the burial or cremation itself.
