The first pall the church was able to buy, cost, according to the Deacons account:

10 el of black cloth at 24f per el f240
A linen cover to protect the pall f14

Total, f254

It was first used at the funeral of Engelbert Steenhuysen, January 16th, 1678. The rent of the pall was quite a source of income to the church. The price to an adult was fourteen guilders and to a child seven guilders, until June 14th, 1715, when it was reduced to six guilders for an adult and three guilders for a child. On January 14th, 1715, the second pall was bought for one hundred and ninety-five guilders, and the old one, probably refitted to use at the burial of children. On January 1st, 1798, a fine large pall was bought for £5 11 s., 3 d. and a small one £2, 13 S., 10 d. The cost of the bier used at funerals was usually seventeen or eighteen guilders, and one lasted five or six years.
