Cemetery fees up 2%
Cemetery fees in Caistor are to rise by 2%, Caistor Town Council decided on Thursday (March 12, 2015).
The council had deferred making a decision about an increase to allow research on whether the town’s fees are lower than neighbouring areas.
But Town Clerk Helen Pitman confirmed Caistor’s charges were in line with others.
There are two rates in Caistor – one for the residents of the town, while the fee for non residents is three times as much, said Ms Pitman.
Cllr Alan Caine pointed out to the meeting that in the worst case scenario, a 2% rise would amount to an extra £10.60. “That is the level of increase we are talking about,” he said.
