Additional mileage (price per mile)£1.75
Additional transfers of the deceased person’s body (e.g. to their home, to a place of worship etc.) (price per transfer)£100
Collection and delivery of ashesPOA
Funeral officiant (e.g. celebrant, minister of religion etc.)£240
Services supplied outside of normal office hoursPrices on request
The funeral director can give you a full list of what they can supply. They are likely to charge for these additional products
and services, so you may choose to take care of some arrangements without their involvement, or you can use a different supplier.

[1] This fee (which is sometimes called the interment fee) is the charge made for digging and closing a new grave, or for reopening and closing an existing grave.

[2] In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, you will usually need to pay doctors’ fees as well. This is the charge for two doctors to sign the Medical Certificates for Cremation.

  1. Responsibility for payment
    In requesting the funeral arrangements you are responsible for payment of our account. This will be sent to you after the funeral and will detail all costs involved with the funeral arrangements. If you send our invoice to a solicitor or someone else for payment we would appreciate your advising us that you have done so. Please remember that you remain liable for payment of the invoice. We may need to contact you again regarding payment if the solicitor does not attend to payment.
    If you intend to make an application for a D.W.P. Funeral Payment please be aware that if the application is successful any payment will normally only settle the funeral account in part. In such circumstance, or where an application is not successful, you accept full liability for any outstanding balance.
  2. Deposits
    Deposits of 50% of the total estimated cost of the funeral are to be paid (Direct cremations are required in full in advance of the funeral) 72 hours before the funeral takes place, by bank transfer, cheque or cash.
  3. Estimates
    The cost of the funeral arrangements on the Confirmation and Estimate form is an estimate only. You should be aware that you may be requested to pay more than the estimate when the funeral has been performed and all costs have been finalised, as a result of any extra services or changes to the arrangements which you request. Wherever practicable we will advise you in advance of the funeral of the effect of
    any of your requests on the final cost.
  4. External payments
    As part of the funeral arrangements, you may have requested us to instruct other suppliers to provide services for the funeral. These services are listed on the Confirmation and Estimate form with an estimate of the cost for the services. The actual cost will be included in the invoice for the funeral arrangements, although it is our policy to request payment in advance for these services. As these other services are not provided by us we do not accept responsibility or liability for the supplier when he or she provides the services.
  5. Valuables
    We do not accept responsibility for jewellery or other valuable items that are left with us, particularly where they are displayed for viewing.
  6. Payments
    You will receive an invoice within seven days of the funeral and payment is due within another 14 days. We accept cash, cheques and bank transfers.
  7. Interest
    If our invoice is not paid as mentioned above we may charge interest at the rate of 12% per annum (1% pcm) from the date of the invoice until payment is received. If the invoice remains outstanding we may transfer your debt to another company for collection. If we do this it will be pursuant to a deed of assignment between us and the other company and this clause is notice to you of that assignment.
