It’s been twelve years since a group of passionate, dedicated individuals had a vision to make burial affordable for all the residents of Tower Hamlets. A lot of thought, hard work and dedication went into the planning process, thus this idea was then channelled to Tower Hamlets Council. Tower Hamlets Council listened to the voices of the people and as a result, a burial ground had been pre-purchased for the community.
The model of this work was to also make burial easy. If, for instance a resident from Redbridge or Newham borough passed away, they would have to pay £3,000 (on average) for a burial space/plot. However, if a resident from Tower Hamlets passed away they would pay £730.
