It’s no secret that funeral prices have increased dramatically over the past 10 years. Such costs affect people when they are at their most vulnerable.

The national average cost of a funeral is reported as £4,271 but because a funeral purchase is made in a state of distress, families do not feel they can “shop around” to make sure they are getting the services they want at the cost they can afford.

At W.S. Ingham & Son Ltd, we pride ourselves not only on delivering an outstanding professional and caring service but also on being competitively priced, fair and open about our charges – we will never upsell or mislead you and will tailor our services to your needs and budget.

Our average cost of a funeral service is £3,598* (this includes our professional fee’s, hearse, limousine and oak veneered coffin plus the disbursement fee’s (third party charges associated with a funeral service) *for a cremation at Mansfield Crematorium.

We welcome all enquiries and can provide a funeral estimate based on your wishes without obligation or an appointment with a Funeral Director – enquires can be made by telephone, email, or in person. We will ask you for some information regarding the services you want and can provide a verbal or written quotation based on this information.

We are here to try and help you when you need it most, and whilst we know that we cannot take your pain away or change what has happened, we promise we will walk beside you and help you at this most difficult time.
