Funeral Costs

Every funeral that we arrange is unique and so the cost is very much dependent on the choices that you make. Burials, for example, are usually significantly more than the cost of a cremation. Although the majority of funeral services that we provide are tailored to meet individual tastes and preferences, we have outlined a range of set funeral packages below to support you in making an informed choice. In addition to these packages, we are able to offer a wide range of bespoke affordable services and would be happy to discuss any specific requirements with you. 

We have an unrivalled reputation for offering a value for money service without compromising on quality or care. Our prices have always been and remain amongst the most competitive of any local funeral director and we back this up with our 'Price Promise.' That said, we believe that there is more to choosing a Funeral Director than price alone...
