Cemetery Burial Charges Reduced

Published on Friday, 17th April 2020

Maldon District Council have taken the decision to reduce the cost of burials in our cemeteries for District residents, from the current cost of £1583 to £898.

We hope that this reduction will also ease the financial burden on families at this most difficult time.

This is in recognition of the extraordinary times that we are living in and that we are currently unable to deliver funeral services as we would have liked, due to having to comply with government guidelines for social distancing.  However, we are closely following the Government’s guidance and we will adhere to any changes they may make.

Cllr Adrian Fluker, Leader of Maldon District Council, said: “I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to all those who have already lost loved ones, friends and colleagues. We have reduced our burial fees during this current health emergency, to help those who will find the burial costs yet another burden”.

Paul King of Paul J King Funeral Directors, a local family firm serving the Maldon District, said; “The decision of the Council to reduce their burial fees for residents, is a very proactive and an extremely welcomed gesture, at a time when families are already facing what will be the hardest moment in their lives”.
