Help deciphering last line please.
« on: Thursday 04 April 19 15:42 BST (UK) »
This was written on the reverse of the Invoice for my Grandfather's brother's funeral.  William George Redman  died aged 23 on 23rd September, 1905.  In the last line all I can make out is ?Grant of ? . The entire bill was 8.17.6d.

This is puzzling. Having recently looked more closely at the original document for Right of Burial dated 25 Sept 1905 purchased by his father it looks like 2 spaces were purchased? But the numbers are not close. However it does mention here, this is a double grave room for 2.  Seems strange as William was not married.

Possibly "Grant of right & stamp" ?

The first word  looks like "Omitted"

'Omitted Grant of Right and stamp 5/6
              Total  3-10'

Meaning they originally forgot to include the charge for the Grant, and the stamp duty.  If you add up the previous amounts plus the extra 5/6, the new total is indeed 3-10 :)

Yes I am in that 'age band' too  ;D. In one job I had to add up old feu duties on Scottish properties in both s d & Scottish merks. Plus old areas in acres, roods, ells & falls. It kept mental arithmetic alive.
