The first decision that must be made is where the burial will take place. We will contact the Priest or Minister concerning the desired location. There are a number of cemeteries owned by local authorities in the area.
In order to carry out an interment in one of these, the grave space will have to be paid for. Most cemeteries lease the land for a reasonably long period of time, after which the lease can be renewed.
The cemetery will require a formal application to be made by the funeral director, this form will specify whether or not the applicant is applying to purchase burial rights, or to re-open a grave.
If the grave is to be re-opened the Exclusive Right Certificate should be shown to the funeral director. In addition either the Coroner’s Order for Burial, or the Certificate for Burial or Cremation (Green Form) issued by the registrar will be required.
