Standardised Price List
All funeral directors are legally required to publish this Price List for a standardised set of products and services. This is to help you think through your options and make choices, and to let you compare prices between different funeral directors (because prices can vary).
Want to calculate the cost of a funeral?
In addition to our Standardised Price List, we’ve made it even easier to get an idea of how much a funeral may cost with our new funeral cost calculator. Simply choose your options and we’ll give you an estimate based on your choices.

Additional funeral director products and services
This funeral director may be able to supply a range of optional, additional products and services, or to arrange (on your behalf) for a third party to supply them. Examples include:
|Additional mileage (price per mile)||£1.75|
|Additional transfers of the deceased person’s body (e.g. to their home, to a place of worship etc.) (price per transfer)||Not offered|
|Collection and delivery of ashes||Not offered|
|Funeral officiant (e.g. celebrant, minister of religion etc.)||Prices on request|
|Services supplied outside of normal office hours||Not offered|
The funeral director can give you a full list of what they can supply. They are likely to charge for these additional products and services, so you may choose to take care of some arrangements without their involvement, or you can use a different supplier.
- This fee (which is sometimes called the interment fee) is the charge made for digging and closing a new grave, or for reopening and closing an existing grave.
- In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, you will usually need to pay doctors’ fees as well. This is the charge for two doctors to sign the Medical Certificates for Cremation.

Terms of business
For Unattended funerals we require payment in full, within 5 working days of the funeral being arranged. The funeral will not take place until this amount is paid in full. The Unattended funeral is a direct disposition and as such this is not a traditional style funeral service, there is no ceremonial service, and no mourners can attend. The funeral will be arranged at a local cemetery or crematorium of our choosing at a day and time that is most convenient to us within 14 days of completion of all the necessary paperwork. For cremations the cremated remains will be available from the funeral home within 21 days of the service.
Attended Funerals require a minimum of a 50% deposit of the estimated costs paid within 5 working days of the funeral being arranged. The funeral will not take place until this amount is paid in full. Our invoice for the outstanding balance will be sent out 2 days after the funeral service and is due within 30 days of the invoice date.
Failure to pay the outstanding amount due within the specified timeframe will lead to an interest charge of 4% per month and any associated debt recovery costs being added to the account in line with our Terms & Conditions.
