We make all 3rd party payments on your behalf to crematoria, cemetery, doctors, newspapers, flowers and any other disbursement fees before the funeral takes place.

We do not usually ask for any upfront costs towards the standard funeral, your account is sent out one week after the funeral has taken place and we ask that the account is settled 1 month after the invoice is received. 

We do not charge for basic funerals for under 16 year olds, you can also have the choice of a hearse or a limousine for travel, we do suggest older children use the hearse. If you would like anything additional to our basic funeral we ask for all these costs to be paid 72hrs before the funeral takes place.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer you an "in house long term funeral payment plan" as we are not regulated by the financial conduct authority and therefore cannot offer you the option of an interest free loan for you pay off the the funeral account.
