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 just wanted to thank you and your staff for the way you conducted Mum’s funeral. I think it would have been exactly as she would have wanted. 

It was a very dignified service and I am so pleased to have met you. If I ever get the opportunity, I will not hesitate to recommend you to others.
