Single charges apply to parishioners.  For non-parishioners (not on electoral roll), fees will be DOUBLED as shown above.  If the deceased’s last residence prior to being admitted to a nursing home/hospital was that of a parishioner, then single fees will apply.  This is at the discretion of the Parish Council.

PLEASE NOTE that there is no resident gravedigger at the cemetery and therefore the undertaker shall obtain the correct numbered grave space and will make arrangements for the gravedigger at an additional arranged fee to the above fees.  The grave-digging fee is not paid to the Parish Council but collected by the undertaker.  Interments should be made Monday – Friday between the hours of 10.00 am and 3.30 pm.  Additional charges may be incurred for burials outside these normal hours.

All applications for Hartington Nether Quarter PC Cemetery must be made to the Clerk to the Parish Council, Mrs S Hampson Cert H. Ed, Dip RSA, telephone number (01335) 310409.  All fees must be made payable to Hartington Nether Quarter Parish Council.  Will undertakers please ensure that the appropriate fee accompanies the “Green Certificate of Disposal”, “Coroners Certificate” or “Certificate for Disposal of Cremated Remains” or is forwarded prior to the day of the interment.

Will undertakers please note that all surplus stone etc must be removed completely away from the burial ground immediately after the grave has been filled in.  The surface of the burial plot must be left flat (except for a small amount to allow for sinkage) and not raised.

To prevent future confusion, will undertakers please advise their clients that the Clerk to the Parish Council must be approached for up-to-date details and fees in regard to memorials etc before applying to a stone mason and the erection of any memorial, as restrictions apply to materials, size and type allowed in the cemetery.

The Parish Council reserves the right to amend the above fees and conditions at any time.
