How much does a funeral Cost?

New faces at Manningtree

Each funeral is unique and individual, costs can vary. Our aim is to offer a fair and competitive pricing structure, so that clients have the widest choice available to suit their budgets. We will always price match.

From a basic funeral to the most elaborate ceremony, we are able to meet any requirements, and we will provide an itemised estimate prior to the funeral, so that all costs are fully explained.

As members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, we are required to offer The Simple Funeral, which includes a suitable coffin and provision of a hearse direct to a local crematorium or cemetery.

Please contact us for more information.

As a family business, we understand it can sometimes be difficult to afford a funeral, and we are always sympathetic to the needs of our clients.

Light a Candle

'Light a Candle' at St James the Great

Once again, we had a very good attendance at our annual service of remembrance at St James the Great Church in Colchester. In it's 16th year, the order of service included a poem in memory of Dr Sam Rawlinson (Col L/RAMC/V Rtd) OBE TD FRCS FRCP. Born in Colchester, innovator in battlefield blood transfusion and veteran of two Gulf Wars.

We have taken delivery of a new First Response Ambulance and a Ford Galaxy to add to our fleet of support vehicles.

Our bespoke ambulances are fitted out to the highest specification, and include all of the most up-to-date equipment available.

Ambulance Ford GalaxyOur trained teams of first call responders are on call 24 hours a day, every day, working for bereaved families, the coroner’s service, and local and national nursing homes, hospitals and hospices.

Men in BlackThe Story behind MIB - It’s not what you think!

So many people comment on our MIB numberplates that we thought it was about time we put the record straight.

Back in the 1980’s we acquired a sequence of MIB registrations from Ireland, and over the years as we added to the fleet we continued to buy registration numbers with the MIB prefix. Then in 1997 the first Men in Black movie was released, and from then on everyone assumed that we had used the ‘Men in Black’ brand as a deliberate link to our own men in black. Nothing could have been further from the truth, but in the ensuing years our distinctive numberplates have certainly become a talking point! We currently have a fleet of 21 vehicles bearing the MIB registrations.
