The cost of a funeral is very much dictated by the style and content. A typical funeral ranges from £2200 to £2600. In exceptional circumstances, the account can be substantially higher. We will prepare a detailed estimate of the total funeral cost at our initial consultation. The final itemised account, payable after the funeral, should not exceed the amount of the estimate unless you have authorised further changes.
You can pay by personal cheque, credit card, cash, or a combination of these, including insurance, bank and, where applicable, DWP cheques. You may pay the account by post or in person at our branch. Alternatively, if you refer the account to your solicitor we can forward correspondence to them.
Please contact the Funeral Director if you have any questions or concerns about your account. We are always available to advise you on any aspect of the funeral arrangements.
If you think you will be unable to meet the costs of the funeral, you should discuss it with us as soon as possible. You may be eligible for help from the Social Fund.
