Exhumation

Exhumation

Exhumations are generally rare. They cannot happen without having the necessary legal authorisation.
It is important to point out that it is unlawful to disturb any human remains (this also includes any cremated remains) without first obtaining the necessary authority.
Exhumation can be a very costly decision and a full cost of all the services required to complete the task should be obtained.

other than the cost of exhumation itself other costs could be involved

  • Removal of existing memorials
  • Exhumation Licences
  • Bishop Faculty fees
  • Funeral directors charges which will include new coffins or cremated remains caskets
  • Cemetery / Crematorium fees and charges
  • Re-burial costs
