This funeral includes:

Removal and daily care of your loved one and laying to rest until the funeral in a closed coffin (Please note that the cost as listed does not include embalming, chapel of rest, or the option to spend time with the open coffin of your love one at our premises prior to the funeral - but if viewing is important to you and your family, you may add this on, and you will find the costs listed within the additional options).
