To determine qualification for a two thirds discount off the full charges (Column 1 of the Table of Fees) the following criteria are applied:
OR  the person owning/purchasing burial rights is a resident;
OR  in the case of a stillborn child, either parent is a resident;
OR  the deceased was a resident for five or more years but became non-resident involuntarily, for example by the need to receive residential care in another area during the period immediately prior to the date of death.
“Resident” is defined as being a person living within the Parish of Chigwell. Please note that the postal district of Chigwell is not co-terminus with the Parish Boundary. A number of properties within the London Borough of Redbridge have Chigwell postal addresses but do not qualify for residential status. (As a general guide, these properties have a postcode starting IG7 4--).
If, however, the above criteria are satisfied but in respect of residence within the Parishes of Buckhurst Hill and Loughton, all fees to be charged will be subject to a one third discount off the full charges (Column 2 of the Table of Fees), with the following exception:
If the person owning the burial rights was, at the time of a purchase which took place prior to 1 October 1997, a resident of the Parishes of Loughton or Buckhurst Hill and is still resident in either of those two Parishes or meets the criterion specified in  above, then for all purposes of calculating fees in respect of the previously purchased grave space or spaces that person shall be treated on par with a resident of Chigwell and, therefore, qualify for a discount of two thirds off the full charges. This exception will not apply to grave spaces purchased on or after 1 October 1997. This concession is not transferable to a subsequent owner.
FOR PERSONS WHO DO NOT MEET THE ABOVE CRITERIA CONCERNING RESIDENCE, THE FULL CHARGES WILL APPLY (Column 3 of the Table of Fees).
