 How the Funeral is invoiced - Deposits
All Funeral Directors who are members of a Professional Association and operate to inspected standards will normally request a deposit payment in advance of the funeral.

The deposit payment will cover the third party costs associated with the funeral - some of which have to be paid in advance of the day (the Cremation, Burial & grave costs, newspaper notices, medical referee fees and officiating Minister/Church fees where applicable, flowers, third party print costs, and any other options added to upgrade the chosen funeral.

The remainder of the cost represents our professional, technical, vehicle and staff services and is invoiced after the funeral.

The deposit required

For our Simple, Standard and Statement range of funerals the deposit is as follows:
Cremation (Simple Funeral) £1,065 plus any additional third party options added to the funeral (E,g, choice of flowers and Church additional costs).
Cremation (Standard Funeral) £1,065 plus any additional third party options added to the funeral (E.g, choice of flowers and Church additional costs).
Burial (Simple Funeral) - £2,078 (includes cost of new grave, so please deduct £1,008 if a grave with space exists) plus any additional third party options added to the funeral(E.g. choice of flowers and Church additional costs)
Burial (Standard) - £2,078 (includes cost of new grave, so please deduct £1,008 if a grave with space exists) plus any additional third party options added to the funeral (E.g. choice of flowers and Church additional costs)
Burial (Statement)- £2,500 (Includes cost of new grave, so please deduct £1,008 if grave with space exists) plus any additional third party options added to the funeral (E.g horse drawn hearse, choice of flowers, Church additional costs)

Non-Guaranteed Funds - E.g DWP Funeral Grant

Sadly, where funds do not exist and the family intends to apply to the DWP for the Funeral Benefit Grant, the Funeral Grant is not a guaranteed payment and where awarded represents on average fifty per cent of a reduced funeral total cost.

We offer the reduced funeral range to help families who may be struggling to keep the costs down, so that even if the grant is not awarded, the debt is repayable in full. We require the full minimum deposit as quoted above (plus any additional options chosen) to be paid in full four clear days before the funeral.

Any additional options chosen that are not listed within the reduced funeral will be added to the deposit so that the final amount owing remains within the limits of the average grant that may be awarded and within the limits of the family budget.
The additional options that you may wish to add to the deposit are your choice of flowers, church fees, embalming and the option to view, family limousine, printed Order of Service etc.

We support responsible undertaking and will strive to offer care and dignity whilst maintaining a cap on the budget for a family who do not have the guaranteed funds available. To this end, we will never propose items that you cannot afford and we do not accept payment instalment terms for either deposit payment or for settlement.
