Bespoke funerals at affordable prices

Update Covid-19 Precautions. 24th March 2020.

As a result of the Government restrictions of 23rd March 2020, we are committed to keeping our staff and our families well and protecting the NHS by our actions. In light of minimal attendance or no attendance services we have devised the following price reductions:

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

Option 1. 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. Total cost excluding disbursements £1996.00

Disbursements for a cremation are £164.00 for Drs fees and £290.00 at West London Crematorium or £365.00 for Mortlake Crematorium before 10am (these services and venue are subject to availability and can be attended by a maximum of 10 people currently). If celebrant or officiating minister required plus £220.00.

Option 2.  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.  Total cost excluding disbursements £1796.00 (these services are not attended and venue may change due to other restrictions).

Attended early morning cremation £2450.00 (direct or add £150.00 if specific route)

Unattended cremation £2250.00

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.

Thank you, Don
