Unlike a Traditional Cremation Funeral, there are many locations where a burial can take place and costs vary quite considerably. Below are a variety of services in easy to understand packages.
All of our Burial Services include the following:
- Bringing a loved one into our care from any local hospital.
- The care of your loved one at our funeral home until the time of burial, within a reasonable time.
- Advice and assistance to register a death (or the Coroner’s procedure, if involved).
- Funeral arrangements at our premises or your own home.
- The use of our private chapel of rest during office hours.
- A hearse cortege leaving from any location within 10 miles of the service location.
- Four professional coffin bearers.
- Collection and administration of donations.
Church Fees & Grave Preparation
All churches and cemeteries charge different fees but a full costing will be discussed during the funeral arrangements.
Our grave preparation fees cost from £450 dependent on the type and location of the grave.
When the death occurs away from a hospital
We can bring your loved one into our care from their private residence or care home, 24 hours a day.
During office hours our fees are £150
For outside of office hours £250
If the death has occurred at their home or nursing home, not local to ourselves, we will arrange for a local funeral director to provide the initial care of your loved one.
Prior to a burial any existing memorial must be removed from the grave.
Our partnered stonemasons can remove and store the memorial ready for an added inscription or new work you wuish them to complete.
The cost to remove and store the stone is £250.
Our coffin range
We have hand selected an exclusive range of coffins from our local coffin manufacturer.
The range varies from a simple wooden veneer coffin to solid wooden caskets.
All our funeral directors are experienced in offering advice on environmental impact of wooden coffins and can show you through our range of willow coffins.
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.
