Planning the service

It can be a comfort to plan a very personalised funeral honouring the life, likes and hobbies of the person who has died. There are a few aspects you’ll need to think about when planning the service, but we’ll guide you through the options so you can create a bespoke funeral.

Funeral prices – how much will the funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral varies, depending on the type of funeral and the different aspects of the service you choose. When we discuss the arrangements with you, we’ll provide you with an itemised estimate and explain each cost. All our prices are transparent, with no hidden extras or fees.

Our price list can be downloaded and we are happy to go through the costs with you.

Paying for the funeral online

We’ve made it easy for you to pay online with us.

Once you have confirmed the funeral you would like there is a deposit to pay. We’ll send an invoice to you for the remaining balance after the funeral.
