Transfer of grave deeds | Sandwell Council

MySandwell, our phone lines and payments will be unavailable on Saturday 11 February and Sunday 12 February.

Normal service will resume at 8am on Monday 13 February. Essential maintenance means we will be unable to process MySandwell requests or payments online or by phone during this time.

Transfer of grave deeds

Grave owners may transfer their grave deeds to another person by completing an assignment of right of burial form.

A charge for this service will apply. Please call 0121 569 6707 for details.

Once a grave owner is deceased the grave deeds cannot be transferred. Families have the option to complete a statutory declaration in order to arrange a burial and place or replace a memorial on the plot.

The statutory declaration must be completed by the person making the arrangements (this is usually the next of kin) and must be signed by a magistrate, solicitor or commissioner for oaths.
