Fees

Clear information about what you should expect to pay for the funeral is a fundamental part of our service.
The cost of a funeral will depend on a number of factors: whether you choose burial or cremation and the third-party fees that apply at your preferred cemetery or crematorium.
The total funeral cost will be made up of our professional fees, any additional services selected and the third-party fees that apply.

Some of the key elements to think about will obviously be around whether the person who has died expressed any preferences or pre-arranged any elements of their funeral beforehand.

  • Burial or Cremation?

  • Would they want a religious, semi-religious or non-religious ceremony?

  • What style of funeral would they have liked, elaborate or simple, traditional or bespoke?

  • Do you want to express their unique personality in elements of the ceremony?

  • How much family and friends involvement would you like in the planning of the arrangements and participation in the ceremony?

Many families find comfort in the traditional church service and others want to express their beliefs in a place that has special meaning to them.
Whichever you choose we will guide and support you every step of the way adding personal touches that will be personal for you.
We will never advise you to purchase or select services that are not required nor will any additional fees be added that you have not requested or are unaware of.
