Our Professional Services

Our professional fee includes everything that is essential to carry out a funeral. Many companies charge extra for the use of the hearse and bearers, which we believe gives a misleading figure to families wishing to compare professional fees. You can rest assured your loved one will remain in our care at your local office until the day of the funeral.

** Direct to Crematory or Burial is a practical, lower cost alternative offered by us to answer the specific requests of families who choose the most simple, dignified and economical means of arranging their loved one’s departure. In recent years we have seen an increase in interest in this option, which is often the wishes of the deceased themselves. The deceased is cremated or buried, at a date and time of our choosing, without any service or attendance at the crematorium or cemetery (this option is not available for churchyards). You can rest assured that your loved one will receive our usual level of respect and dignity throughout, including the use of our hearse, bearers and full ceremonial clothing. A memorial service can be arranged by yourself, if desired, at a time, date and location most convenient and most fitting to you.

TERMS OF SETTLEMENT Applicable from 1st July 2019

After the funeral arrangements have been discussed, you will be required to pay a deposit or payment of cleared funds, within five working days of the funeral arrangements taking place, and this will be calculated on the type of funeral arrangements discussed. You will then be sent a written estimate or invoice of all the charges incurred, in line with the service you have requested. We need to draw your attention that, failure to pay the deposit or invoice within the given time frame, will result in the cancellation of all funeral arrangements. Your Deposit and Final Invoice Payment can be made by Bank Transfer, Debit or Credit Card, Cheque or Cash. The balance of the account will be required as laid out in the following paragraph.

By accepting our Terms & Conditions, you consent that you accept the charges and will be liable for payment of the final account when submitted. This is usually one week after the funeral and it is expected for payment to be made within thirty days. You also accept that if no payment or contact has been made within sixty days of the funeral, the account will be forwarded to a third party debt recovery company and additional recovery/legal costs will be incurred. If wished, the account may be forwarded to a solicitor or bank. If, because of your circumstances, you have to make a claim for assistance from the Department of Work and Pensions, please note that stringent rules apply as to the amount of help available. Please talk to us, in confidence, for guidance.
