Pricing

Funerals are made up of two types of charges and can vary in cost significantly depending on the specific requirements: the funeral director’s fee plus third party costs (disbursements).

Direct Disposal Service £1,995.00 plus third party costs.

Being a member of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF), we are able to offer a service to cover the arrangements necessary for a very basic cremation or burial service. This will include the provision of a hearse, necessary staff. An additional £120 is charged where six bearers are required. Our basic coffin and local collection of the deceased within normal working hours is also included. Hygienic Embalming Treatment and viewing in our chapels of rest is not included. We are unable to handle donations on your behalf. The hearse will travel directly to the Crematorium or Cemetery to meet mourners.
