Our 'FuneralPlus + is a simple committal and direct cremation from only £995.00 We guarantee to provide outstanding levels of care and standards for your loved one. This service is very simple; a cremation locally and then the cremated remains returned to the funeral home for you to collect. It suits some people to have this very simple committal.  But remember this is the simplest of committals. Family are not present and there are no visits to the chapel of rest and there are no ministers of religion or celebrants. There is no service; it is simply cremation. There are other conditions that apply. There are services that can be added to the FuneralPlus + but they will carry extra expense. It is important to be clear on this. Please call by or email in for clarification, if you're not sure on this as an option

It always best to bear in mind that not all funeral services are the same. One maybe cheap, a bargain price, but that doesn't mean its value for money. Look at the quality of the funeral home, the chapels of rest, the cars , the coffin that is supplied and the staff and their appearance.

All funerals generally have about £1,100 of third part payments minimum. This comprises the crematorium basic charge, the doctors fees and a person to take the service at the crematorium. So, our funeral homes with quality staff, premises, equipment and experts on hand to provide the care that's needed comes at a reasonable cost. We will always do our utmost to provide a cost conscious service, but it is important that prices are compared 'like for like'. We've invested a tremendous amount in the quality of our premises, the fixtures and fittings, vehicles and staff training. This is so the whole experience of this dreadful time in family life is made as bearable as possible in respect of what we can help with.
