The Institute of Cemetery & Crematorium Management (ICCM) produced the charter to improve the services offered to the bereaved. The charter defines the rights of every individual who experiences bereavement and is intended to set standards of service and improve choice.
The council is committed to following the '33 rights' identified in the charter and is continually seeking to improve the burial service for all its users. The charter 'rights' are available to view on request at the Town Hall, Ripley.
