Funeral Service Options & Prices

Our Funeral Service Options

 

Our funerals are tailored to meet your wishes. Funeral services may include religious or non-religious elements.

Whatever your requirements, we’re here to help.

 

 

 

When considering and comparing funeral companies:

It is possible to be misled into believing that all companies provide the same quality of products and level of service and that the only determining factor in your decision should be price.  This is absolutely not the case. Funeral companies differ greatly in the quality of the standard of their professional services. Bear in mind that much of what is done on your behalf will never be seen by you.

To ensure you choose a funeral director that will provide you with the quality of care, attention and service you deserve you should consider other factors along with the cost, such as the reputation of the company, the standard of their facilities, the quality of their merchandise and perhaps most importantly of all the qualities that their staff possess.  These are the people who will be looking after your family and your loved one.

We are dedicated to providing you with a choice of services and products to fit your individual requirements and budget.  We are dedicated towards delivering to the highest standard and that may well be better than other funeral companies you are comparing us with.

We offer three funeral options:

• The Bespoke Funeral Service which is entirely flexible and may be tailored to your requirements.
• The Simple Funeral Service which is a fixed price cremation service.
• The Direct Cremation Funeral Service which is a fixed price cremation service without a ceremony.

We have included a break down of costs for The Simple Funeral Service and The Direct Cremation Funeral Service.  This includes third-party costs (disbursements). For guidance purposes we have based the cremation fees on those applicable at Macclesfield Crematorium.  We are, of course, able to undertake funeral services at all other local crematoria but clearly their fees would apply.

We will be pleased to meet with you at our premises where you can see our facilities for yourself, meet our staff and discuss your wishes in detail.  We will always provide you with a written estimate of funeral costs with no obligation to engage our company.

Importantly: We are members of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors and our facilities and the services we provide are monitored by them to ensure that we are compliant with their stringent regulations.

The Bespoke Funeral Service

Tailored to your wishes

Our Bespoke Funeral Services are completely tailored and arranged precisely according to your wishes and needs.

Bespoke Funeral Services can include a traditional church service, service at a local crematorium or less conventional service venues. You could choose limousines or alternative vehicles you may own or we will look to source for you. We can include newspaper notices, personalised coffins, service sheets, floral tributes, music and refreshments.

We offer options such as a Green or Eco funerals, where we are able to supply coffins and cremated remains caskets constructed of natural and biodegradable materials.

We can also offer, what we call our DIY Service, for those who wish to have personal and practical involvement in carrying out certain aspects of the funeral under our guidance.

We can also arrange for items such as bespoke keepsakes or scatter tubes for cremated remains.

In all cases we will work alongside you giving you as much support, guidance and practical input as you need to fulfil your wishes and achieve a day to remember for you, your loved one, family and friends.

Our Bespoke Funeral Service is entirely flexible and designed to meet your needs and wishes, whatever they may be.

Charges based on your bespoke requirements.
