This provides a level of service to enable a simple funeral to be held on a limited budget. We can offer this by restricting the options available and arranging the date and time of the funeral at our convenience, although we would always work with you regarding dates. This option provides for a Hearse only which will go directly from our premises to the place of service, our professional fees and includes a simple coffin. The cost for this is £1,600.00 (plus disbursements). Disbursements are known as third party costs beyond our control; for example, Minister fee’s, Doctor’s fee’s for Cremation documents, Crematorium fee’s, or Cemetery fee’s.
