- Funeral Costs
In all aspects of the funeral arrangements our staff will point out the procedures and legal requirements.
Whilst arranging the funeral, we will advise on costs and charges to be incurred, culminating in a full written estimate that should be arranged and signed so that you feel confident with the funeral commitment you have arranged.
The funeral account itself is divided into two separate parts, the funeral directors charges and the disbursements. These contain our professional fees and overhead costs, which include the provision of a 24 hour a day on call rota, our professional services in making the funeral arrangements and arranging documentation and necessary personal attendances, the conveyance of the deceased to our private chapel rest rooms and the use of the same until the day of the funeral.
Relatives and friends often wish to visit the deceased and pay their last respects before the day of the funeral, on the specific request of the family.
Hygienic treatment and attendances of the deceased are also considered to be very important by our company. The last time you saw a loved one may have been a distressing memory, perhaps in hospital or for the purposes of identification. In any event we believe that, in asking us to look after a member of your family, you would like to be a certain at the best that could be done for your relative has been done whether you wish to visit the deceased before the funeral or not.
