Cemeteries

When burial is the preferred option, clients have two options;

 

1)      re-open an existing grave, providing one is available, and there is space in the grave for the burial.

2)      purchase a new grave - new graves can usually hold two to four burials, depending upon the cemetery, and the location of the grave in the cemetery.

 

The burial fees charged by cemeteries usually range from €700 to €1200, and are charged whenever a burial takes place. The cost of purchasing a new grave ranges from €1200 to €5000, although, in some cemeteries, new graves can cost a lot more.
