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 Grant of Letters of Administration were 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.
