Personal Service and Modest Fees

Cremations, Burials, Woodland Ceremonies, Funeral Repatriations

Cremations from £1200 inclusive, low burial prices on application

We’re expert in all aspects of local funeral costs including the most affordable fees for cremations and burials.  We never “upsell” and will always let you know if there is a another choice to reduce costs.

Each affordable package price is a guide – each crematorium and every cemetery have different fees and choices. Many cemeteries have area resident special rates. Every church and temple have different facilities and charges.

For funeral repatriation outside the UK, we are partners of Mears Repatriation, another very well-respected family company specialising in international coffin transportation of the highest standard at affordable rates.  (If your family does not already have an appointed funeral director in the country of destination, they have a network of agents for your direct contact).    For instant pricing, please use this link http://www.stevenmearsgroup.co.uk/repatriation/repatriation-from-UK.htm

Funeral Repatriations back to the UK – we can help with this too, usually in conjunction with your travel insurance company.  Please call us to find out bespoke prices.
