Costs For A Funeral – Requesting An Estimate

We understand how difficult a time it can be to arrange the funeral of a loved one, as well as considering covering the costs.

In recognition of this we will never ask for any type of deposit or ‘upfront fees’ before a funeral service takes place. We allow those using our services the time to arrange your finances, providing a detailed estimate of the funeral cost before the service takes place. This allows you to focus on the funeral ceremony, without a need to pay any deposit or upfront fees.

Testimonials

Thank you for the way in which you conducted the cremation of Les, I can honestly say that family and friends alike were very impressed with the service. In fact, from the time I first spoke to you on the phone I knew I had made the right choice and I thank you for making a difficult time as easy as possible for us all.

Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic service that you have given to my children with regards to their father, who’s funeral took place today at Kingsdown Crematorium.

My eldest daughter Lisa had said what a lovely person you were and how you had made her feel so at ease when she initially spoke with you. When I first met you a day or so later, I saw for myself exactly what she meant. You were so welcoming, so calming and so professional in all you did.

When I came to the chapel of rest, again you were welcoming and so understanding and again today at the funeral.

May I personally say a big thank you for the heart-warming service you gave.
