Funeral Costs

We understand that the cost of a funeral can be a great worry to our families. Although prepaid funeral plans are available, many people do not have this provision in place when someone passes away. We have always offered a high quality service and have kept our pricing to a minimum to help our families during this difficult time.

Our low price will never compromise our service

The Simple and Direct Unattended packages do not allow for chapel visits, if you would like visits there will be an extra charge of £100.

Removals out of normal working hours (8am – 5pm) and weekend collection of the deceased, will be charged at £200.

As a Direct Unattended Cremation does not involve an associated service you may wish to plan an alternative ceremony: we can help with options for organising a service to meet your needs.

There are a growing number of Direct Cremation 'man and a van' operators. As funeral directors at the heart of the community, we will always use a hearse and four bearers; our values dictate that whether traditional funeral or direct cremation, no-one should experience a compromise on dignity or care.
