As independent, family run Undertakers, we set out to provide a caring, professional funeral service, at any crematorium from our locations across the county for a reasonable price.
We believe that delivering an affordable, dignified service is all about being fair, transparent and professional. That’s why we include the Crematorium Fees in our quoted prices; unlike other Third Party charges (sometimes called Disbursements), this is an unavoidale cost in a cremation funeral. Unfortunately, many other companies ADD this to their advertised prices, and you could end up with a final bill that is more than £1,000 higher than their headline price.
From your very first call, our role is to take care of the details, the practical matters and the arrangements for you and your family.
Working with the Hospital, the Doctors and the Coroner, we will take care of collections and transfers to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Once we have collected your loved one, we will provide a respectable, lined and furnished, oak finished coffin suitable for cremation. We will prepare and look after them in our private mortuary facilities until the day of the funeral.
There may be occasions where height and/or weight considerations cause additional or unusual requirements. These may include, but are not limited to, the requirement for additional personnel, special equipment, an oversize coffin (longer than 6 feet and/or wider than 20 inches), and/or extra fees charged by the crematorium. In such cases, once we have the full information, we will always confirm a full and fixed price for you.
To make sure everything is in order, our experienced staff will visit you to complete the necessary paperwork. We will also take this opportunity to discuss the funeral service you feel will be most appropriate for you and your family.
We will arrange whatever form of service best suits you and your family; You may decide on a religious service held in the crematorium chapel, or in your local church (church and/or minister’s fees are not included in our charges).
You may prefer to have a semi or non-religious service with your own celebrant (celebrant fees are not included in our charges). We can introduce a Humanist or Civil Celebrant, if it helps.
You might want to put together your own, informal Family Service. If so, we will help you prepare and present your own short, suitable memorial service.
Whatever kind of service you choose to have, this moment is personal and particular to your family; it is important that it is right – for you.
Please take a moment to read some of the kind words from other families.
