All of the above fees are trebled for a person who at the time of death resides outside the borough of Welwyn Hatfield.

Any fee relating to the grave afterwards will also be trebled. The only exceptions to the trebling of fees are applied as follows:

  • If a grave for more than one person is purchased at the standard rate for the first interment for a resident of the borough, any future fees will remain as standard.
  • If a resident is required to move out of the area for medical care or to a nursing home within the last 2 years due to ill-health, a standard fee would apply.

Proof of deceased's residency within the borough will be required for all bookings. Grant of Exclusive Rights and Licences for Cremated Remains will not be issued until funeral fees have been paid.
