Holbeach Parish Council has announced higher charges for some services at its cemeteries in Hallgate and Park Road.

The cost of interning ashes has risen from £45 to £60, whilst charges in five other cases have gone up by £20.

Parish councillors agreed the new charges at their July meeting and Coun Paul Brighton, chairman of the finance committee, said: “We increase them every three years and it’s only putting us into line with most of the other areas around here.”
