Detailed guidance on parochial fees can be found in The Guide to Church of England Parochial Fees. Specific guidance on parochial fees produced by the finance team in the diocese is available here.

The current table of fees and returns forms can be found below:


2023 (March to December)

2023 (January to February)

Please return all DBF fees as soon as possible after the end of every month using the monthly return form above. It is also important that you send in a NIL return if there is no fee income for the month. Forms can be sent by email to or by post to:

St John’s House, 155-163 The Rock, Bury, BL9 0ND 

For any payments that are made to the DBF by bank transfer, please quote your parish reference/fees e.g. R12345/Fees

A copy of the form should be retained by the parish for your records. 

Please discourage clients/funeral directors from writing out personal cheques.
