Funeral Costs

Every funeral that we arrange is unique and so the cost of a funeral service is dependent on the choices that you make. Burials for example are typically more expensive than cremations.


Our prices have always been and remain amongst the most competitive of any local funeral director. We have an unrivalled reputation for offering a value for money service without compromising on quality or care. Find out more about our 'price promise' by clicking here.
