Costs and Charges

Funeral Costs and Charges

In all aspects of the funeral arrangements we will make you aware of procedures and legal requirements.

Whilst arranging the funeral, we will advise on costs and charges to be incurred, culminating in a full written estimate so that you feel confident with the funeral commitment you have arranged.

The funeral account itself is divided into two separate parts, our costs and the disbursements. These contain our professional fees and overhead costs, which include the provision of a 24 hour a day on call rota, our professional services in making the funeral arrangements, arranging documentation and necessary personal attendances, the conveyance of your loved one to our private rooms of rest and their care until the day of the funeral.

‘Choose the service that is right for you and your individual needs’
