Child Burial Fees
At the Town Council meeting on 5 June 2018, Councillors unanimously agreed to waive burial fees for all children under the age of 18 who are resident in Alcester.
The Government has indicated that it intends to set up a Children’s Funeral Fund later in the year to cover such fees but the Town Council has agreed to implement this change immediately.
