Registration Service Provision of Discretionary Services

For the Lead Member to note the breadth of discretionary services available through the Registration Service and consider proposals to:

1) refer customers who are getting married to an approved Will writer, in return for a referral fee (predicated on the fact that marriage annuls all former wills).

2) refer customers to an approved insurance broker to organise Ceremony insurance for them in return for a fee from the insurance broker.

3) hold funeral services and wakes at Southover Grange.

4) offer a fee reduction of up to 25% for non-statutory optional ceremonies if they are booked at the same time as the customer transacting other business with the service.
