Bespoke funerals at affordable prices.

We work alongside ‘Down To Earth’ for practical support to help people with funeral costs.

Funeral Costs updated 13/09/2021.

As a result of current legislation, we are obliged to place all our fees and disbursements online and for all to see.

Government legislation as of 16th September 2021 state we must provide our standardised prices, these are available here.

This will be for our normal service as required, early morning attended cremation service and non-attended direct cremation services.

We are offering a direct committal service to either one of our local crematoria. This service includes the following

Option 1. Attended service: Our professional fees, collection of the person who has died 24hrs, provision of suitable hearse or our private ambulance direct to committal location, a suitable coffin and staff for the event.

Disbursements for a cremation are £82.00 for Dr fees then £290.00 at West London Crematorium or £365.00 for Mortlake Crematorium before 10am.

 If celebrant or officiating minister required plus £220.00.

Option 2. Unattended service:  This type of service is when the family wish not to attend the funeral but wish for us to carry out the arrangements and collect the ashes. Our professional fees, collection of the person who has died 24hrs, provision of our private ambulance direct to committal location, a suitable coffin and staff for the event. (these services are strictly non-attended and venue may change due to other restrictions).

Please note: the above figures are put in place to help people in the current climate to carry out a basic cremation funeral.

If our normal services are required or an attended burial, then the below fees still apply.

NB: Service times, prices and permitted attendees may vary – due to changing Covid restrictions please ask us for the latest information.

Thank you, Don
