Plot Transfers

There are two types of Plot Transfers:

1. Transfer of Grant of Right of Burial (from deceased to living)

Often a family member may wish to transfer right of burial of a plot from a deceased relative into their own name. To do this a form needs to be completed and returned to Recreation, Cemeteries & Sport Section Division, accompanied by a solicitors or Commissioners for Oaths letter confirming details.

2. Assignment of Right of Burial

This occurs when a ‘living’ person with a right of burial in a plot wishes to assign the right of burial to somebody else. A form needs to be completed and returned to Recreation, Cemeteries & Sport Division accompanied by the original Grant of Right of Burial.

Duplicate Grant of Right of Burial

If an original Deed has been lost, the person who is the named Right of Burial holder can apply for a Duplicate Deed, as per form below.
