Notes about our fees 

Double interments - (where the bodies of two members of one family are interred at the same time) the lesser of the two interment fees will be reduced by half.

Double fees for non-residents of the Borough - Where a non-resident is to be buried in an existing grave to be reunited with a family member, there will be no double fee charged. Where a non-resident is to be buried in a new grave and has not resided in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees during the 5 years preceding their death the Interment fee and Purchase of the Rights of Burial fee will be doubled.

Full adult grave spaces will not be sold for the interment of cremated remains only.
