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.

Council chiefs wanted to bring costs in line with ones already under their control such as Paddington Cemetery in Willesden Lane, Kilburn.
Also on the agenda for tonight's meeting is the report into graffiti in Brent with results from the community consultation.
- 1 Pink mob: Two Harlesden women among gang jailed for drug offences valued at £2million
- 2 Swan stops train in its track at Kensal Rise
- 3 Tapas restaurant The Star opens in Willesden Green with free parties
- 4 Application submitted to turn 'bed bug' hotel in Harlesden into HMO
- 5 Man who murdered Kilburn waiter jailed
- 6 TfL told to introduce 'pay per mile' charge to motorists
- 7 Wembley pensioner, 71, off to university with EuroMillions win
- 8 QPR were soft in heavy Fulham defeat says boss Warburton
- 9 Estranged husband who set wife on fire in Stonebridge jailed
- 10 Man admits killing Kilburn waiter to end his days 'banged up' court hears
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.
