At Chelsea Funeral Directors, we understand that financial considerations are important when organising a funeral and, as we intend to always be fully transparent with our services, we have created a quick and simple guide.
Limited Service Funeral: in line with The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, our basic funeral package costs £1,995 plus disbursements (the fees that we pay on your behalf). A very basic cremation service will cost from £2,524.00. A burial will cost considerably more as burial space comes at a premium.
Traditional Funeral Service: when it comes to traditional services, the price can vary greatly depending on personal requirements such as limousines, flowers and newspaper announcements. As such, in order to get an accurate quotation, we strongly advise that you discuss your wishes with our team.
