BURIAL BOARD

Goudhurst Burial Board Fees         

These charges apply from 01 September 2018 and are valid to 31 August 2019

The Goudhurst Burial Board, in accordance with paragraphs 1 & 2 of Schedule 26 to the Local Government Act, 1972, is a joint Committee of the constituent authorities by arrangement under Part VI (i.e. Section 101 (5)) of the 1972 Act. This being so, the Board has the powers of its constituent authorities.  It therefore has powers under Article 15 of the Local Authorities Cemeteries Order 1977 to fix and charge such fees as it considers proper. 

These fees apply where the person to be interred was not immediately before his or her death an inhabitant or parishioner of the Civil Parish of Goudhurst.  

However, if the deceased to be interred had been granted an Exclusive Right of Burial as an inhabitant or parishioner or has close family connections with the Parish of Goudhurst in Kent then a 50% rebate may, on application, be granted on the fees.
