Cemeteries and Crematorium Fees and Charges

 

Bereavement Services

The Council offers various methods of payment. However where you pay by credit card it will be necessary for you to pick up the charges imposed by credit card companies on the Council for this facility and therefore you will incur a further 2% administration fee if you choose to pay by credit card.

(From 03 April 2017)

The Council provides cemeteries at Ashton, Audenshaw, Denton, Droylsden, Dukinfield, Hyde, Mossley and Mottram and has a crematorium in Dukinfield.
