Click here for the Table of Parochial Fees from 1 January 2020

 This table sets out the fees prescribed by the Parochial Fees Order 2014 (a Statutory Instrument) and summarises other relevant information. For legal purposes reference should be made to the Order itself.

For further information about fees refer to the Guide to Church of England Parochial Fees and Frequently Asked Questions which are available on the Church of England website.

The nationally-set and statutory fees do not include charges for heating, the services of a verger, music (e.g. organist, choir), bells, and flowers, which are fixed annually by the Parochial Church Councils. In the case of a baptism, a marriage service or a funeral service in church, any costs and expenses incurred in respect of routine administration (including arranging dates and times and the making of entries in registers), making the church available and lighting it are included in the fee prescribed as payable to the Parochial Church Council.

Please note that there are strict Diocesan Regulations about Churchyards, Monuments and items that may ne introduced into a churchyard, so do please discuss such matters with a churchwarden or The Rector before purchasing a memorial or bringing items into a churchyard to leave on a grave in order to avoid any hurt, upset or unnecessary cost.
