A guide to our charges

As part of our commitment to making payment work for you, we aim to be as transparent and open as possible about all our fees and any third party fees as possible.

Our fees

Our service, support and administrative charge include all administration, staffing and facilities.

This covers all our professional services, the obtaining of all documents, completing the same and forwarding to the appropriate authorities. Your Funeral Director’s attention to details regarding arrangements and supervision throughout. The conveyance of the deceased to our Private Chapels of Rest, at any time, night or day, and within a 10 mile radius of our premises. Corresponding with all parties in relation to the funeral; preparing and submitting press notices; receiving floral tributes and handling In Memoriam donations; attending to all documentation and disbursements.

Whilst in our care, the administering of minor hygienic treatment, supplying and fitting of a plain polished coffin with interior set and matching robe and the use of our Chapel of Rest until the funeral. Provision of a hearse, four bearers and the attendance of your funeral director at the funeral.

Our standard funeral charge includes our York coffin which is a plain polished coffin, with suitable fittings and handles. We have a large range of coffins available that you can choose from and a price is available for any of these on request.

We can provide funerals for you at other times or, if you wish, elsewhere in the county and across the country. Such arrangements are by special quotation.

If you would like to discuss our services, the best way is to meet a member of our staff. We can visit you in your own home or you can come to one of our funeral offices – whichever is more convenient for you.

Disbursements

Disbursements are the fees which we pay (on your behalf) in order to secure the services provided by third parties in order to carry out the funeral. These will most often include some or all of the following: Doctor’s fees; Celebrant’s fees; Cemetery charges; Crematorium fees, a post-funeral reception and such like.

The disbursements are added to our charges in order to arrive at the final funeral charge.

Supplementary services

We can also provide you with a range of other services beyond those outlined on this page including:

  • Conveyance of the deceased person to their home or their church prior to the funeral ceremony.
  • Alternative funeral hearses and transport including horse-drawn hearse.
  • Orders of service, funeral stationery and flowers.
  • Arranging and attending cremated remains interments.

Funeral charges

Some charges are standard whilst others change based on the type of funeral, it’s location and any particular preferences you have. If you would like to discuss prices in more detail please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Although every effort will be made to maintain these prices, it may be necessary from time to time to pass on certain additional charges. Fees will be charged at the prices stated by the appropriate Authority at the time. A full written estimate of Funeral Charges and Disbursements will be given or sent to the applicant for all funerals arranged by us. No VAT is charged on top of these charges as funerals and associated services are exempt.
