The cost of purchasing a plot from Northumberland County Council is currently £660.00. For privately owned cemeteries the rates for purchase vary.
In addition to the fee to purchase the ground there will be an interment fee. Interment fee for Northumberland County Council is currently £672.00 for double depth and £625.00 for single depth.
These fees for interment are for an adult. Reduced prices are applicable for a child. An additional sur-charge may be applicable for a burial on a Saturday or if the deceased was not a resident in the local area.
In addition to these fees, there will be costs to consider for a newspaper notice, flowers, and ministers fee or honorarium if required, the cost of a coffin, and the fees that are paid directly to Tom Woodhouse for the use of our services to arrange and conduct the funeral.
It is not uncommon for a funeral account for a burial to cost somewhere in the region of £2,500 - £3,000. Please contact us if you would like any further information, or would like a detailed estimate of the costs incurred. We would be pleased to help.
