Over the years we have learned that just like no two persons are ever the same, no two funerals are ever the same and require specific funeral planning. The last thing we want is for you to be pressured into choices that you’re not happy with. We can take care of every aspect of your funeral arrangements in a very personal way and are happy to provide you with a written estimate of the funeral arrangements.

We offer a Direct Cremation (unattended) at a complete price of £1,700.

Our prices start at £2,245 for our Simple Funeral, in addition to this you will be asked to pay for Third party Costs – usually, doctors’ fees, clergy fees, church fees, cremation, and burial fees. Burial fees vary from Church Owned Cemeteries to Council Owned Cemeteries. We carry out DWP Funerals, local authority funerals and local hospital funerals at the same high standard that you would expect.

We can assist you with the necessary forms should you wish to apply for a grant towards the cost of a funeral.
