Costs

Price is of course an important factor to take into account when arranging the funeral of a loved one. It is often the smaller services that can make all the difference to the final amount.

We will become part of your lives for a short time and we will listen to your requests and no matter what you decide to do, we will provide the same care, respect, and sensitivity to you and your loved one. We will always provide the personal care you would expect from a truly independent family business.

 

What makes up the cost of a funeral?

Funeral costs fall into 2 categories, to get the total cost these figures are added together.

Funeral Director’s Charges; these are our charges for carrying out the details of your chosen arrangement.

Disbursements (3rd party costs); these are costs we have no direct control over, such as crematorium or cemetery fees; these fees will not change regardless of which funeral director you use, but they may change depending on the choices you make for the funeral.

Our full prices are available if you would like to call us and discuss your requirements
