If you opt for a burial, you will need to think about where this will take place.

Dean Harper Funeral Directors are here to contact the Local Authorities and check the regulations and availability on your behalf.

If there is a grave already in existence that you would like to use, perhaps part of a family plot, then we can arrange to use that. The Local Authority will need the deeds of the grave or any documents relating to the grave. If you don’t have them then we will need to contact the Local Authority to ascertain who the grave owner is. We will also need check that there is space available for the burial.

Costs you need to consider for a burial might include: purchasing a new grave, reopening an existing grave and removal and replacement of existing memorials.
