(2)The incumbent of each such district shall, subject to such regulations as may be made by the bishop, be entitled to use the chapel for the performance of the burial service, and the like fees shall be chargeable as would have been chargeable had the burial service been performed in the church of the district and the burial taken place in a burial ground belonging solely to that district.

(3)If after the consecration of such a burial ground additional land adjoining or near to it is acquired by the [F1diocesan board of finance] as a burial ground for any of the districts for which the original burial ground was acquired or for any other ecclesiastical district, the chapel may, subject to such regulations as aforesaid, be used for the performance of the burial service in the case of persons to be buried in the additional ground, and every such lodge or other building and approach or access as aforesaid may similarly be used.

(4)The freehold of the chapel on the consecration thereof and the freehold of any such lodge, buildings and means of access on the erection or construction thereof shall vest in the bishop:

Provided that such vesting shall not impose on the bishop any liabilities for the maintenance of any such chapel, lodge, building or means of access.

(5)The [F1diocesan board of finance] may in any case, and shall, if different parts of the land were acquired by [F3it] for the use of the several districts, apportion the burial ground exclusive of such chapel, lodge, buildings and means of access, amongst the several districts.
