  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Information about the fees and regulations relating to Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals, Monuments and Register Searches can be found on the fees page of the Church of England’s website.

The table of statutory fees is revised each year and a copy should be displayed in the church. (The tables are no longer sent to clergy by the Church Commissioners. If you cannot print a copy please contact your Area Finance Adviser.)

There are usually two parts to a fee; one for the PCC and one for the Diocese. The PCC treasurer should collect the whole fee and then make a return each quarter to the Diocese for any fees due.

A quarterly return form is available to download from the bottom of this page, in both Word and Excel formats.

The Church of England website includes a booklet of Frequently Asked Questions (pdf).

If you have other queries, e.g. which clergy in the London Diocese may receive fees, please contact your Area Finance Adviser.
