Our Services And Costings

We have been providing Families with a complete funeral service since 1909, we continue to offer the traditional services which our forefathers offered and we are now in the 3rd and 4th generation of our family. We will ensure that your loved one will get the send-off they deserve. 

Unlike many other funeral directors, we believe that by being transparent with our pricing structure it allows our clients to fully understand how they may tailor to their own budget.

Whist there are many different options available which we would be pleased to discuss with you, we feel it is helpful to provide four packages, Direct Cremation, Simple Funeral, Traditional Funeral and a Burial Option, which provide plenty of choice for you to get started on your arrangements.

On initial contact regarding a death in your family we will ask for preliminary details and will advise the conveyance procedure of the decreased to our private chapels of rest. From there we will arrange a time and place to suit you and your family for the funeral director to call and arrange the funeral.

At all of our offices we also have private chapels of rest and family members and friends are welcome to visit at any time they desire to see a loved one.

Our Services & Costings

We are happy to discuss costings for a funeral, whether it be over the phone, in one of our offices or at a private address.

We tailor our funerals to suit what the client and family needs. Although we do offer one simple funeral package, which is low cost and to help the needs of a family who wish to have the simplest of funerals. For more information about our simple funeral packages, please follow this link - Simple Funeral Options.

Up on contact with ourselves and once we have a picture of what the funeral wishes are, we will be able to issue a written and verbal estimate of costs in full.

We do ask for a deposit to be paid prior to the funeral, this being all 3rd Party Fees (Disbursements) 48 Hours before the funeral takes place.

(We may ask for a higher deposit if high cost additional services are requested. E.G. a horse drawn hearse)

These figures would need to be paid two days prior to the funeral taking place, if they are not paid the funeral may be temporarily postponed.

We are very accommodating, and understand being able to organise such a deposit in a short time scale could cause difficulty. If you are waiting for insurance policies, bank payments or other sources, we would allow the payment to be made after the funeral upon receipt of such polices or as such in official writing from the payee. We also do accepted families which are making DWP claims, and we are one of the very few funeral directors who accept payment plans.

Once the funeral has taken place we will send a detailed, final funeral invoice to the client. This would be payable within a month of receipt.

Payments can be made by:

  • Cheque
  • Cash
  • Credit or Debit Card
  • BACS- Online Bank Transfer
  • Funeral Financing**
  • Monthly Payments*

*Monthly Payment Plan – we do offer a payment plan direct to us. This would require the deposit to be paid, and a 12 monthly payment plan can then be set up.

**Funeral Financing – we are the only local company to work alongside Braemar Finance to offer short and long term funeral loans to pay for the funeral account. This is subject to status of the applicant, but does not have to be the next of kin.

DWP Funeral Payment from The Social Fund – the DWP do grant funeral payments towards the funeral costs. This will depend on the applicant’s circumstances and income. Please visit this link https://www.gov.uk/funeral-payments/overview to complete and review the application process.
