Funeral Prices

Following a recent review by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) we are required to publish a standard set of funeral fees and services. The below is a guide to some of our fees and services, as set out by the CMA. We do not sell 'packages' because in our experience, just like every life, every funeral is unique and is tailored to suit indivdual requirements. Please telephone us to discuss your individual requirements and we can work out a cost depending on the level of service required.


All funeral directors are legally required to publish this Price List for a standardised set of products  and services. This is to help you think through your options and make choices, and to let you  compare prices between different funeral directors (because prices can vary).

This fee (which is sometimes called the interment fee) is the charge made for digging and closing a new grave, or for reopening and closing an existing grave.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, you will usually need to pay doctors’ fees as well. This is the charge for two  doctors to sign the Medical Certificates for Cremation.
