Funeral costs

As 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 are able to meet any requirements, from a basic, simple funeral to the most elaborate ceremony. We will provide an itemised estimate prior to the funeral, so that all costs are fully explained. We will always endeavour to price match.

How funeral costs work

There are two separate components which make up the cost of a funeral. Firstly, the Funeral Directors Professional Charges, and secondly, the Disbursements. These are the fees paid on your behalf, such as doctors, cemetery or crematorium, clergy and church fees.
