 Create your own Personalised Funeral

Please note that essentials listed are for the minimum reduced funeral type, so where Simple, Simple Plus or Standard elements are required, you may amend these by adding the cost itemised options to the subtotals shown.

Alternatively if you require a reduced cost funeral but wish to add one special tribute item such as a horse drawn hearse, this allows you to see the additional cost whilst retaining other items at lower cost.

We plan to make this calculator interactive in the near future - but for now, it is a manual exercise - so you will need a calculator or pen and paper, but we do hope it is useful, nonetheless as a planning tool.
