3. IF any person claiming to be the owner of the graves fails to satisfy the Committee that they are the owner then the matter may be determined on the application of either party to the Registrar of the consistory court of the diocese who shall make an order confirming whether or not the claimant is the owner of such right and as to the payment of the costs of the application

4. ANY claim for compensation by the registered owner or person satisfying the Committee that they are the owner must be made within 6 MONTHS from the extinguishment of the right. ANY compensation payable shall be a sum representing the value of the right as may be agreed between the registered owner and the Committee or failing agreement determined
