Standardised Price List

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.

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).
