Funeral Costs

We offer funeral services including tailored pre-paid funeral plans. As a result, the final cost will depend on the services you require. We will work closely with you to ensure that the final fee fits within your budget.

Estimate of fees

Following the initial planning appointment, we will calculate the costs and give our estimate of fees and a letter confirming the funeral arrangements. In the event that you would like to add more services to your arrangement, please inform us immediately so we can adjust the costs accordingly. The fee estimate will be split into two separate categories including Funeral Director Fees and disbursements.

Funeral Director Costs

The fee for Funeral Director costs covers the services we specifically provide.

Disbursement Fees

Disbursements are payments that are made to third parties on your behalf. They include payments to cover the costs of things such as the crematorium, cemetery, flowers, newspaper notices, organist, doctors and minister.

Final Invoice

Following the funeral, we will send you a final invoice detailing the total amount due to cover both our services and the disbursements. We offer a few different options of how to pay the final invoice.

Payment Options

To make things easier for you, we offer a range of payment options.

Payment through a solicitor

If a solicitor is responsible for settling the account, please ensure to advise us as soon as possible. We will liaise with them regarding the final payment.

Administering the estate yourself

If you are responsible for administering the estate, you will need to submit the final invoice to the bank or building society of the deceased. The bank or building society will debit the payment directly from the account.

Settling the invoice yourself

If you are settling the invoice yourself, we can accept cheques, bank transfers and card payments. If you pay prior to the funeral by BAC’s or debit card, you may qualify for a discount.
