We are here to help you arrange the funeral you want for your loved one
The cost of a funeral is made up of a number of items, some of which are straightforward and directly under your control, even though we will carry out the duty with or for you, theses include:
The buying of a grave, if required.
Organising and paying the grave opening fees.
The choice of the casket, coffin or urn.
The use of our range of chauffeur driven cars, Saloon / Limousine / Hearse – we would be pleased to confirm a rate per journey / daily rate.
The use of our purpose built private facilities, such as The Church, The Lynn/ Dawson rooms.
Staffing the funeral service as per your requirements.
The employ of any performing artist, e.g. soloist / musician(s).
The provision of Orders of Service to your specification.
There are of course some other costs which are of a variable nature, making them more difficult to determine exactly prior to incurring them, these include:
Our professional services, i.e. transfer of deceased, embalming and preparation.
Making all necessary arrangements for the burial or cremation.
In the case of cremation, we must obtain and complete all statutory forms – from doctors, Justice of the Peace, and Family.
Arranging the services of the clergy et al. if using a church for the service.
Providing assistance in compiling obituary notice(s), and placing of same in newspaper(s).
Making and receiving telephone calls and payment of all fees on your behalf.
Administering charitable donations.
We offer you the choice of a vast range of floral tributes, which we will supply and store if or until required.
The above list is not exhaustive, we will always try to accommodate all your specific instructions, but it will hopefully provide you with a basis on which you can discuss your requirements in detail with David Brown your Personal Funeral Director. Being here for you means we are here to provide you with the funeral of your choice, and we will discuss and explain any of the above, and can provide you with a written estimate if required.
