COSTS & OTHER SERVICES
In all aspects of the funeral arrangements our staff will point out the procedures and legal requirements.
Whilst arranging the funeral, we will advise on costs and charges to be incurred, culminating in a full written estimate which will be given to the person responsible for the arrangements before the day of the funeral.
Our account itself is divided into three separate parts, our charges, the disbursements and the coffin or casket.
Our charges include professional fees and overhead costs, which include the provision of a 24 hour a day call rota, our professional services in making the funeral arrangements and arranging documentation and necessary personal attendance’s, the conveyance of the deceased to our Private Chapel of Rest.
Disbursements are essentially fees that we pay out on behalf of the family. These include Doctors fees, Crematoria/Cemetery fees, Parochial fees, Newspaper Announcements and Printing.
Our written estimate will detail the approximate cost of any disbursements. However, as we have no direct control over these charges, they could be slight variations from the estimate.
Coffin or casket charges are for the coffin/casket you choose including the gown and lining etc. The account can be paid for by cash, cheque or credit card.
