Costs

We honestly believe that as a small, family run, funeral service we are in the best position to offer families the very best possible service, but at the most competitive prices. As we do not have shareholders and we are not part of a larger group we simply do not need to charge the over inflated prices you are likely to find elsewhere.

The price of a funeral is made up of two parts. Firstly, the cost of the services provided by the Funeral Director and secondly, the disbursements. Disbursements are fees paid before the funeral on the family’s behalf. These include things like Cremation fee, Church fees and doctor’s fees. Please note, the disbursements are the same regardless of the funeral director and should always be charged “at cost”.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR

£1575

Rather than giving an itemised list of the many different costs involved, we prefer to quote one figure which includes everything we do for you in relation to the funeral. This includes everything from collecting your loved ones from the place where they die, right through to the hearse and staff who attend on the day of the funeral. This figure also includes a good quality oak veneered coffin and unlimited use of our Chapel of Rest (including evenings and weekends by arrangement).
