Cremation and burial charges in Glasgow are to increase by more than 7% after the budget.

The charge for a cremation will go up from £605 to £650.

The SNP said it brings the city in line with the Scottish average for cremations and will help fund essential work at Daldowie and Linn.

Burial charges at the city’s cemeteries will also rise by 10% to £980 for an interment and £1209 to buy a lair.

The council doesn’t expect it to affect demand for the service.
