Churchyard and Cemetery Burials

Costs For A Funeral – Requesting An Estimate

We understand how difficult a time it can be to arrange the funeral of a loved one, as well as considering covering the costs.

In recognition of this we will never ask for any type of deposit or ‘upfront fees’ before a funeral service takes place. We allow those using our services the time to arrange your finances, providing a detailed estimate of the funeral cost before the service takes place. This allows you to focus on the funeral ceremony, without a need to pay any deposit or upfront fees.

Testimonials

I wanted to say thank you for all your assistance and support in the time from Mum’s death to her funeral. I have been grateful for your guidance and advice in an area where I have so little knowledge and found myself not knowing what action to take next.

From the first conversation it was evident that you were the right person to help us through this difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to others.

JE

On behalf of my family and I, we would all like to express our sincere thanks to you all at Pearce Funeral Services for looking after our mother and directing her funeral. John, the day I met you I trusted my mother to your services. 

You walked into my home and an older brother, became like a member of our family, and lightened our grief, we thank you so much. Everything you have done for our mother was perfect.
