Planning the Service

There are a few aspects you’ll need to think about when planning the service. It can be a comfort at this time to plan a very personalised funeral honouring the life, likes and hobbies of the person who has died.

Here to help you plan the funeral service

We’ll happily meet with the family to go through the arrangements and get everyone’s opinion on both necessary additions and aspects you feel are less important, so that all relevant points of view are taken into consideration. We’ve ensured there are plenty of options for you to choose from, to make the service truly bespoke.

Below are the first things to consider when planning the service. We will be there throughout to ensure you haven’t missed anything important.

Funeral prices – how much will the funeral cost?

Funeral prices vary, depending on the type of funeral you choose and the different aspects of the service you choose. We’ll provide you with an initial estimate when we discuss the arrangements with you. All our prices are transparent, and the price we agree is what you’ll pay, with no hidden extras or fees to worry about after the event.

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.

The day of the funeral

The order of events on the day of the funeral will have been discussed and agreed in advance, but we will also be in touch with you the day before the funeral to confirm the plans and ensure you know exactly what to expect. On the day itself, we’ll be there to support and guide you through.
