Funeral Fees

We provide funeral services that are tailored to meet your exact requirements. Therefore, there are no fixed costs. The cost of your funeral will be dependent upon the particular services that you need.

Funeral cost estimation

Following the initial planning consultation, we will summarise the expenses and provide you with a fee estimation. After you have received your estimate, you have the option to alter the plans if you wish but this may mean the cost of our services are adjusted to reflect your revised plans.

We separate fees into two sections, covering both charges and disbursements. Disbursements are payments that we make for you to third parties such as the crematorium or cemetery, florists, newspapers, minister, organist, doctors etc. If you want to make any changes to your services, then please inform us as soon as you can.

Paying for the funeral

We will send the final invoice out to you 10 days after the day of the funeral. Just a few ways in which the final bill can be settled include:

Direct payment from you

If you are making a direct payment, please organise a bank transfer. If you are struggling to cover the costs, you might qualify for financial support via benefit schemes from the government.

Through a Solicitor

If you have chosen a solicitor to take care of the final account, then please let us know as soon as you can.

Handling the estate on behalf of the deceased

If you are taking care of the estate yourself, you will be required to submit an invoice to the building society or bank of your loved one. This will mean that the payment can be taken straight from their account.
