Cornwall burial right fees set at £500

Cornwall Council is introducing a new single rate fee of £500 for burial rights.

The county’s unitary authority is introducing the changes because four areas under six former districts have been charging different rates.

Revisions were made to original plans after funeral directors raised concerns over the suggested £750 exclusive right of burial (ERB) price.

The ERB period in Cornwall was also due to be cut from 99 years to 30, before the council decided upon 50.

Changes to the current system come into effect in August.
