At the time of arranging a funeral you will receive a fully itemised estimate. This allows to you see clearly the cost of each aspect of the funeral.
We respectfully ask for payment prior to the funeral taking place for disbursements (cemetery and crematoria fees, flowers, newspaper announcements etc.)These are costs paid to third parties on behalf of our clients.
Should you wish to pay in full prior to the service taking place we offer a discount of £200.
10% discount is also available on monumental purchases for returning clients.
Approximately one week after the funeral has taken place we will send the fully itemised invoice. The invoice can be paid in person at your local funeral home by cash, cheque or credit/debit card. Alternatively, you can pay by cheque via post or by credit/debit card over the telephone. The invoice is due for payment within 30 days.
Assistance is available from the Department for Work and Pensions’ (DWP) Social Fund which can provide assistance to individuals who meet the required criteria. To qualify you must demonstrate that you are the most suitable person to take responsibility for paying the funeral account – additionally you must be receiving at least one of several qualifying benefits and have insufficient savings to pay for the funeral.
The DWP Funeral Payment will provide a contribution to help towards funeral costs. Our staff are able to advise you further regarding DWP assistance.
