CMA Standardised Price List

Since September 2021 the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has required that all UK funeral directors clearly display a Standardised Price List of basic funeral costs, which you can see below or download in pdf format. While this is very welcome, because it allows you to compare prices between funeral directors more easily, please bear in mind that these prices are for our most basic funerals. In practice, most people will require additional services (such as limousines, printed orders of service, flowers, etc.), which are added costs that you will find on our Additional Funeral Director Services list, also displayed below.

As these additions can add up significantly, we offer a range of traditional cost-effective Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum funeral packages. These include all these basic costs, plus different options for added items. We recommend you read about these on our Funeral Costs page.
