Help & advice - Funeral cost calculator


‘Transparency in what we do and how we do it’.


Does the cost of a funeral worry you? 

Whenever you look at prices for funerals you should ask yourself whether or not a particular firm’s prices are openly available on line, as ours are.

You should also be aware that there are two parts to the cost of a funeral; the funeral director’s charges AND those of third parties such as the doctors, a celebrant/ minister and the crematorium or cemetery.

With our calculator you can put your mind at rest and get an estimate of the overall cost, not just of our charges but those of typical third party providers too, if you choose our bespoke product. Otherwise we have some solutions to suit all tastes and budgets.

Bespoke (refer to prices & charges – third party charges extra)

Where choice is the ultimate requirement for your loved one’s funeral this is the solution for you. Choose any service or product from our prices & charges list, or ask us to provide something you want but can’t see listed, and we will craft a celebration of a life to remember.

Purely cremation £1,250 – including third party charges)

As the name implies this service is for families who, for whatever reason, want a cremation at the lowest possible cost. We will collect your loved one during the normal working day from their place of death*, attend to all the paperwork, provide a suitable coffin and transportation to a crematorium on a day, and at a time, of our choice. We will then collect the cremated remains and hold them for you for three months for you to collect or, at additional cost, send them to you. Either before or just after the cremation, with or without the cremated remains you can hold a memorial or thanksgiving service, have the cremated remains interred in a cemetery or churchyard, or purchase an ornament and keep them at home.
