Funeral Costs

Funeral costs are generally in two parts. Firstly there are the Funeral Director's Charges which would include:

  • Making all necessary arrangements and obtaining all documentation
  • Liaison with all appropriate authorities
  • Collection of the deceased and transfer to Chapel of Rest
  • Care of the deceased until the day of the funeral
  • Paying of last respects at our private Chapel of Rest
  • Provision of hearse and bearers
  • Attendance of the Funeral Director at the funeral

Secondly, there is what are called Disbursements. This is money that your Funeral Director will pay out on your behalf and reclaim from you as part of your Funeral Account. These charges could include:

  • 2 Doctors Medical Certificates for cremation
  • Crematorium fees, church burial fees or cemetery fees
  • Grave excavation for a burial
  • Other church fees (i.e. verger or organist)
  • Minister or Officiant fees
  • Newspaper Announcements
  • Floral Tributes
  • Catering
