Modern Funeral Service
No Mileage Charge
An attended, simple cremation funeral.
Nationwide service by a family owned, independent funeral director.
A modern funeral is a mixture between a direct cremation and a traditional funeral. It has the bare essentials needed for a cremation but you are able to attend the service as a normal funeral with someone to lead the service and additional options.
So how is this simplified from a traditional service?
Firstly the big difference is the use of a private ambulance to transport your loved one rather than a hearse. We would arrive at the crematorium before you and place your loved one in the chapel ready for the service. As well as reducing the cost element of a hearse this new option reduces the formality of a traditional funeral.
The service can still be lead by a religious minister or funeral celebrant and we are on hand to help arrange floral tributes and orders of service.
Funeral directors fee £1095
Our professional fees include all advice and guidance throughout the funeral process including the registration procedure and the necessary cremation forms.
If the death occurs in a hospital £100
As most hospitals have onsite mortuary facilities we are able to organise the completion of doctor's cremation certificates prior to us bringing your loved one into our care.
If the death occurs away from a hospital £250
If your loved one passes away at home, in a care setting or a hospice then we must keep them close to the doctor that last attended them. This may require us to employ the services of another funeral director for the initial care.
The coffin £275
As this type of funeral would still give you a normal style service at the crematorium we offer an oak effect or elm effect coffin. There are many more coffins in our range which can be discussed with you.
The crematorium fee from £850
Each crematorium charges different fees and currently have different attendance limits. We will be able to give you an exact cost once instructed which crematorium you wish to use.
Doctor's cremation certificate £82
It is a requirement for a cremation that a doctor completes a cremation certificate. Prior to the coronavirus outbreak it was a requirement for two doctors to complete the forms. We are unaware if this will revert back after the epidemic finishes.
Minister or Civil celebrant £200
If you require a service to be lead by a Minister or Civil Celebrant.
Potential additional cost
For coffins larger than 6’2″ x 20″ there would be an additional £250 charge.
This is due to a bespoke, strengthened coffin being required and additional staffing needs.
