Exclusive rights of burial

Purchasing the Exclusive Right of Burial gives the purchaser control over further burials in the grave should space allow, and over any memorials that may be placed on the grave (following submission of an application to Sunderland City Council and approval being granted). The Exclusive Right of Burial does not grant ownership of the land. The period of the Exclusive Right of Burial is 50 years for cremated remains graves, and 100 years for full graves.
