From 16th September 2021 it is a legal requirement for all funeral directors in England and Wales to comply with the Government’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) ruling to display on their website a ‘Standardised Price List’ of our standard funeral costs.
This should reflect an identical criteria for all funeral directors charges to help compare costs; We are pricing our Standard Price List based on our most popular funeral service (The Traditional Way).
Some companies are displaying their most basic charges therefore a ‘like for like’ comparison is not accurate. We advise you to carefully consider the criteria when comparing charges to ensure you are getting the service you require.
As every funeral is personal and unique to every individual, the costs of each funeral vary.
Attached below is a guide to the types of services that we offer.
The ‘Traditional Funeral’ shown in our Standard Price List, is the most used and popular funeral option allowing you flexibility and being in control with all the funeral arrangements. This option allows for a burial or cremation with the option of a church service prior to a cremation if required.
The ‘Simple Funeral’ is a more cost-effective option with just the basic necessities included.
The ‘Direct Cremation‘ is Cremation without Ceremony, known as a direct cremation; this is for those who would prefer a no fuss funeral. It is different to both a traditional and simple funeral as there is no funeral service at the Crematorium.
Please note the charges are for our professional services only including our standard coffin but excluding disbursements (third party costs).
Fees and Disbursements
Disbursements are the essential fees which we pay out on behalf of the family. For example these include:
These fees will be itemised on our funeral account.
For the purposes of providing written estimates, we approximate the cost of any disbursements. However, since we have no control over these specific charges, they may be subject to slight variations.
