PART 2Provisions that apply in relation to the parochial fees prescribed in Part 1

1.  Where “—” appears in a table no fee is payable to the body indicated.

4.  Where section 1(8) of the Measure applies, paragraph 3 shall apply as if the references to the parochial church council were to the corporate body of the cathedral.

5.  The fees marked (†) include fees in respect of the approval of the original inscription by the incumbent.

6.  Any fee prescribed under the heading “SEARCHES IN CHURCH REGISTERS ETC.” for a copy, is for a certified copy; and where provision of a copy is included in the fee for a search, that fee includes the provision of a certified copy.

7.  In the case of a burial under the Burial Laws Amendment Act 1880(4), the fees prescribed in respect of a burial in a churchyard are payable.

8.  Where a layman publishes banns under section 9(2) of the Marriage Act 1949(5), the fees prescribed in respect of the publication of banns of marriage are payable.

9.  Where a churchwarden allows a search to be made in a register of baptisms or burials or gives a copy of an entry in such a register under section 20(1) of the Parochial Registers and Records Measure 1978, the fees prescribed in respect of such searches and to the giving of such copies are payable.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

The Order amends Schedule A1 to the Ecclesiastical Fees Measure 1986 by removing the following services from the table of matters in respect of which parochial fees may be prescribed: Service of Prayer and Dedication after a Civil Marriage, in church; Service of Thanksgiving for marriage in church; Memorial service in church.

The Order goes on to prescribe the parochial fees payable in respect of certain matters in connection with marriages and burials and the erection of monuments in churchyards and in respect of other, miscellaneous matters. The fees are in substitution for the fees prescribed by the Parochial Fees Order 2010 (S.I. 2010/1924).
