Maidstone Cemetery Prices


Service Charges

We need coffin sizes 3 days before the service so we can prepare the grave. If a coffin is over 26” wide & or 82” long, it is subject to additional digging fees. Changing coffin sizes after the grave has been prepared will incur an additional charge from £100.
