Funeral Prices

Our business is designed to have low overheads and as such we can provide excellent value while maintaining a high quality personal service.

How much will a funeral service cost?

The cost of funerals can vary depending on the specific arrangements. To get an accurate price, we would always recommend calling to discuss your wishes, and we’re always willing to meet with you, face to face, to gain a better understanding of exactly what you want.

If you are working to a budget, we can provide advice on how this can be achievable. We are always extremely careful with your money and you will never be pressured to choose an expensive option.


A basic but dignified funeral starts from around £2,700.00. With the addition of reception and memorial costs, this can rise to between £3,000 and £5,000.

All our prices include the necessary third party costs (disbursements), so there are never any unexpected costs after we have conducted the funeral.

Payment terms

Unlike many other funeral directors, we do not ask for a deposit up front. We believe this flexible approach will help reduce the stress caused at this already difficult time.

We ask for payment within 60 days from the issue of our invoice.

Direct cremation service

We offer a direct cremation service for those not wanting a traditional funeral. This does not provide opportunity to be present when we visit the crematorium, but we still provide a dignified coffin and our usual high standard of care for the deceased.

The cost of this direct cremation service starts from £1,295.


Commitment with Compassion


We are committed to giving unrivalled, experienced support throughout the whole process and with all arrangements.

We really care about each and every family that we are privileged enough to help, and pride ourselves on offering a compassionate, supportive, human touch during this distressing time.
