Costs For A Funeral - Requesting An Estimate

 

 

We appreciate how funeral costs can often be an area of concern for families.

In recognition of this we will never ask for any type of deposit or 'upfront fees' before a funeral service takes place, giving you space and time to arrange your financial affairs whilst arranging the funeral. We always provide every family with a clear and detailed breakdown of costs at the time of discussing the arrangements, ensuring that you are always fully informed and prepared.

Burial

Direct To Cremation Option

We are aware that some families do not require any type of service at all and only require a cremation itself, with no service in the chapel of the crematorium or any mourners attending a ceremony. For families wishing to explore this option we offer our 'Direct To Cremation' service.

Within this service we would arrange all documentation, provide the necessary transport and the coffin required for the cremation to take place at Kingsdown Crematorium. There is no option for any family member to attend the crematorium when your loved one arrives there. We will arrange for you to receive the cremated remains after the cremation has taken place, should you wish to receive them.

Due to the nature of this type of service it would not be an option that everyone would feel is appropriate. If, however, you would like to explore this as an option then the cost would be £1424.00. This is inclusive of our fees, crematorium fees and doctors. Please contact us for further information.
