Increased fees for burial charges at the borough's cemeteries will be discussed at a council meeting tonight.
Brent Council's Executive is set to rubber stamp plans to increase fees and charges in their cemeteries by around 1.5 per cent.
The proposal, which is recommended to be passed by council officers, would come in to force on May 1 because the council took management of the London Borough of Harrow Cemetery at Carpenders Park.

Results indicate that residents believe more patrols by PCSos and better street lighting could cut graffiti and half of those took part would like to see more street art.
The report also requests approval from the Executive to create a new Borough Graffiti Policy which would outline the council's views on the crime.
The North Circular Road Regeneration Area, which is one of the largest regeneration schemes in the country, is also due before the panel.
Results of public consultation on the scheme will be delivered during the meeting which will also focus on plans for future.
Early results indicate support for regeneration with particular importance attached to reducing pollution levels in the area.
Executive members are recommended to approve the 'vision' document for the plans during the meeting tonight which would see huge regeneration to areas such as the St Raphael's and Brentfield Road Estates on Neasden.
