Some of the things we are asked…
Actually, we much prefer to say “reasonable” but, it’s a good question.
From the beginning, we set out to deliver a dignified professional service, …and value for money (read some of the kind words we have recieved from other families), so we are careful to manage our costs, control our budgets and to keep our overheads down; for example, we don’t have a string of High St. funeral homes.
This means that we don’t need to overcharge you.
No, you can have any kind of service you want; religious, non-religious or an informal family service. And, you can play your choice of music. 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.
Yes, we can provide a limousine to accompany the hearse for the cortege.
Yes. We offer Pre-Paid Funeral Plans; tailored for your peace of mind. Call us for more information.
Can you provide help in making a claim for Funeral Payments from the Department for Work and Pensions?
Yes, Details of how to make your application can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/funeral-payments/overview We will still need a deposit to cover disbursements – those third party funeral costs we cover on your behalf. If you think you may need to make a claim to the DWP, please contact us immediately and we will help in any way we can.
Yes, we offer the same value for money service right across the county. You may choose to have your service at any Council run crematorium listed in our Locations drop-down menu.
PLEASE NOTE: Crematorium Fees ARE INCLUDED in our quoted prices. Unlike other Third Party charges (sometimes called Disbursements), this is an unavoidale cost in a cremation funeral. 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.
We can also cover Southport, West Lancashire and Charnock Richard, but would ask for a modest uplift in our price to cover their higher than average Crematorium Charges. Please call for a quote.
On some occasions, where height and or weight factors are a consideration, there may be restrictions on which crematorium we can use.
…and you will, understandably, have questions of your own.
We are here to help; please call us, and ask.
