  • If you recommend someone to join ELELS in this sixtieth anniversary year, you will receive a discount on your own membership fees, and they will also benefit from a discount. The discount that the referring member receives will be the same as the discount for a new member/s. The discount for a new single member will be £35, and for a couple will be £69 (in both cases this is 10% of the membership fees for singles/couples)
  • This discount applies only for stated, published membership fees.
  • The discount applies to new member referred from publication of this offer 1/3/2020 to 31/12/2020. Discounts cannot be paid against referrals prior to this date.
  • The discounts will be applied to membership fees for the following year’s subscription. So, if a member refers somebody in 2020, they will receive the discount from their subscription in 2021. 
  • If they stay members, then you both will also receive this discount for the following 2 years, (for 2022 and 2023).
  • If membership ends before the following year, then no discount will be applied.
  • For every new member you have recommended, you will receive this discount. 
  • Only one member can receive this discount for each new joiner.
  • The discount does not apply to overage premiums due, or other contributions to the burial scheme.
  • To claim this discount
    • (A) you should send an email with the code ANNIV10 giving your name and the incoming member’s name to membership@elels.org.uk. This email should precede the receipt of the membership form from the prospective member.
    • (B) When they join, they need to quote the name of the member who has referred them (if any).
  • Once (A) and (B) have both taken place, and the member has officially joined the community, the discount will be applied (in the following year).
