Burial Costs

Our Wooden Bier and Barn

We offer the use of our wooden bier and barn to every funeral, at no additional cost. We actively encourage families to use the wooden bier, and participate in carrying their loved one to their final resting place. 

Wales is, of course, known for its rainy days and therefore the barn can be used for funeral gatherings during poor weather. In May 2019, the barn became an addition to Hay Meadow Burial Ground, having been constructed and designed by us. The barn overlooks the Meadow and Busnant Wood, a native woodland which we are creating and also display the Welsh Slate Heart memorials inside.

There is also no additional burial registrations fees or additional charges for weekend funerals.

Right of Burial

When reserving a ‘Right of Burial’ on your chosen spot, it is secured; whether you occupy it immediately or in 10, 20 or 60 years time. The purchase of a reserved Right of Burial is for the right to be buried in the plot only and does not confer ownership of the ground or any other rights. If you choose to reserve a spot, you will be given a Reservation Certificate which provides details of the chosen spot.

 

The grave preparation and administration fees may rise over time and are payable when a burial takes place. However, should your plot remain unoccupied within 30 years from date of reservation, your spot will expire unless you contact us and re-sign – at no extra cost, to confirm that you still wish to be buried with us. Of course, if you move home you will also need to notify us so we can do our best to try and contact you.  

 

*Please note a Right of Burial is not transferable*

 

Plots can only be reserved directly from Hay Meadow Burial Ground.

Refunds

We appreciate that sometimes situations can change. Refunds will be issued on request, based on the original purchase price and subject to an Administration Fee of £200.00 per plot.
