Transferring the Exclusive Right of Burial
When the last remaining Grant Holder is deceased a transfer via their estate must take place before any further burial or memorial erection or amendment can take place. Please note a fee will apply.
For the transfer to take place we will need to know if the deceased Grant Holder left a will and if Grant of Probate was obtained. If so, we will need to see and take a copy of the sealed Grant. If not, we will need to see and take a copy of the will and any codicils.
If the deceased Grant Holder did not leave a will we will ask if a Grant of Letters of Administration was obtained. If so, we will need to see and take a copy of the sealed Grant. If not, a Statutory Declaration signed in the presence of a Magistrate or Commissioner of Oaths by the lawful next of kin must be made.
A living Grant Holder can change ownership at any time.
