The Traditional Funeral
A burial in a churchyard or cemetery
Including directors’ fees, £350 interment fee allowance and a minister or celebrant.
This includes the expert advice and guidance of an experienced Funeral Director from the initial arrangements through to, and beyond, the day of the burial. The completion of all administrative duties and arrangement of third party companies, including organisation and all necessary paperwork.
Conveyance and care of your loved one.
This is our focus for your loved one. We will convey them into our care within 15 miles of one of our funeral homes, in a specially equipped private ambulance. They will remain in our care until the day of the funeral service and you will be communicated with every step of the way. During their time with us, we will ensure the upmost dignity is provided in their preparation and dressing in their own clothes. Our private chapel of rest is available should you wish to visit them.
A traditional hearse and four coffin bearers.
On the day of the funeral, your loved one will travel in a traditional black hearse and carried, subject to safety, by four professional coffin bearers.
The coffin selection.
We will supply a simple elm or oak effect coffin however you are welcome to choose from our full range if you wish, at an additional cost. We will only discuss these options if they are requested.
Wish for a church service?
Our traditional burial service includes a service at the graveside however, if you would like a service in the church or another venue pre or post interment we can arrange it all for you.
As all churches charge different fees a bespoke cost will be discussed during the funeral arrangements.
NOTE: For clients requiring a coffin over 6’2″ tall or 22″ width and/or weighing in excess of 20 stone we require additional costs of £350, due to staffing needs and bespoke size coffins.
