Bespoke Funeral Costs
We aim to offer a fair and highly competitive funeral pricing structure.
Funeral costs consist of the Funeral Director Fees and those disbursement fees paid on your behalf such as church, cemetery or doctors' fees. The disbursement fees are common to all funeral directors and it should be noted that some disbursement costs are increased by cemetery authorities, should the deceased have lived outside of their defined boundary.
We offer fully bespoke funerals which are priced accordingly and we always provide a fully itemised estimate of all charges.
Charges for a standard cremation service:
|Hearse direct to crematorium||£2300|
|Simple light oak veneer coffin||£400|
|Minister or officiant fee||£224|
|Doctors’ fees||2 x £82|
|Total cost from||£3938|
Additional costs such as Limousines (£300) or Executive Saloon (£165) can be added as required.
We require a deposit at the time of booking and the balance is invoiced the week after the funeral date.
Payment can be made online by BACS, cheque or credit / debit card. There is no VAT on funeral costs.
Should you wish to make a claim for a contribution towards funeral costs through the DWP, we can offer advice and prepare an invoice as required for the process of application. See the link below for information.
Direct Cremation Service
We are committed to ensure that funerals are offered with real choice and have created our Direct Cremation for those that would like a very simplified funeral with no ceremony and no attendance.
Funeral costs consist of the Funeral Director Fees and crematorium disbursement fee. It excludes doctors fees (normally £164 but during the COVID period this is £82)
There are a growing number of Direct Cremation 'man and a van' operators. As funeral directors at the heart of the community, we will always use a hearse and four bearers; our values dictate that whether traditional funeral or direct cremation, no-one should experience a compromise on dignity or care.
As a Direct Cremation does not involve an associated service you may wish to plan an alternative ceremony: we can help with options for venues and catering to meet your needs.
Direct Cremation includes:
Daytime transfer from a hospital or coroner’s mortuary within 15 miles.
Completion of all documentation.
Cremation at a day and time we choose – No funeral service and no attendance at crematorium.
Simple coffin, in standard size, with nameplate.
Option to collect cremated remains from the crematorium or scatter in the Garden of Remembrance (unwitnessed).
Full payment in advance.
Total Cost £1395
Out of hours transfer – additional £280.
