Tailored Choices And Options

Our commitment to you extends to our pricing when arranging a funeral. Our dignified approach applies to all our funerals. Whatever type of funeral is arranged the costing will be known to you when the arrangements are being made.

Our charges and professional fees for arranging and conducting a Funeral Service are extremely competitive.

There are, of course, additional costs (known as disbursements) which are charged by third parties. These disbursements include Doctors Fees, Ministers fees, Crematorium and Burial fees etc. The current charge for these can be quoted at any time.

What kind of funeral service?

No matter what kind of funeral you have in mind we will tailor our service to your specific requirements, to ensure that the funeral is an individual, special and memorable occasion.

Care of your loved one

We will care for your loved one with the greatest forethought and respect ensuring that their dignity is maintained at all times.

Very occasionally we recommend that a hygienic treatment procedure is carried out. This is to retard any effects of deterioration which occurs naturally when someone dies and to maintain a peaceful, restful and natural appearance. This treatment is carried out by an experienced and professionally qualified practitioner who is a member of the British Institute of Embalmers. We are happy to provide further information if requested.

Spending time with your loved ones

You may find comfort in spending time with your loved one after they have died. It may ease the bereavement process and help you come to terms with your loss.

Our dedicated chapel of rest offers peace and tranquillity for you to spend time with your loved one in comfort and privacy. Our aim is that your visit should be a positive experience and we endeavour to accommodate any requirements you have to make the visit very special and meaningful and offer help and support throughout. Visits can be arranged at any time by appointment.

Golden Charter Pre-paid Funeral Plans

As Independent funeral directors we are proud to offer Golden Charter Funeral Plans. More than 150,000 people have arranged and purchased their funerals in advance through Golden Charter; the U.K’s leading independent funeral provider.

More and more people are choosing the option to pre arrange and pay for their own funeral services to make things easier for those left behind as well as to guarantee that their own specific wishes for their funeral are carried out. As well as the Funeral Director’s fees you may also choose to make a payment towards third party costs known as disbursements such as crematorium/cemetery fees, doctor’s and minister’s fees and even put some money towards a headstone should the need arise.

All payments are put into a secure fund and are only made available to us in the event of the death of the plan beneficiary. The cost of the plan can be made in one lump sum or by monthly instalments. Furthermore if our company ceases to trade, your money is completely safe and the plan can be transferred to another local funeral director.

Alternatively you may choose to simply record your wishes to us. We will store the information, such as the place for a funeral service, favourite hymns or readings, floral tributes etc. and keep it on our records until required. We will then endeavour, with permission of your executors or family, to carry out those wishes. This is a free service with no obligation.
