The Cost of a Funeral

You may already know what funeral arrangements you will need to implement, perhaps from having spoken with your loved one before their death or you may know of some relevant paperwork in the form of a Will, a pre-paid plan or simply a handwritten note expressing any wishes. No matter what the question or the query, please do not feel unable to ask, as it is a very important occasion and everything needs to be right. We want you to be able to choose the best option for you – be that a dignified simple arrangement or something more elaborate.

If you are unsure we will be on hand to provide guidance and advice every step of the way. To help, we have prepared some standardised options that will enable you to see and to compare some of the prices that may be incurred so you can be sure that you are making a controlled and informed decision.
