The cost of a funeral is arrived at by adding together two elements, which are –
The Funeral Directors charges:
- The arranging, staffing and use of available facilities
- The conveyance of the deceased including collection, care and transport for the funeral (hearse and limousines)
- Selected coffin
The Third Party fees or disbursements, fee’s paid on the families behalf:
- Cemetery or Cremation fees
- Church fees
- Minister fees
Also any other applicable fee’s, for example organist, service sheets/cards, catering, flowers and any other items supplied by us or ordered on your behalf.
