Funeral Costs

There are two separate parts which make up the cost of a Funeral, the Funeral Directors Professional Fees and the Disbursements which are fees paid on the families behalf such as Doctors, Cemetery or Crematorium, Church and Clergy. We treat each family individually so costs will vary depending on choice and budget. We are able to meet any requirements from a basic funeral to the most elaborate ceremony and will provide an itemised estimate prior to the Funeral so each cost is fully explained.

Our payment terms require the Disbursements to be paid in advance of the funeral with the balance invoiced approximately 7 days after the funeral date. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Funerals are VAT exempt.

In certain circumstances help towards the funeral expenses may be claimed from the DWP.
