Each funeral is unique and very personal and costs are reflected by the choices and decisions the family make. Many options and prices are available and are best discussed with your Funeral Director to achieve the ideal farewell whilst satisfying budgetary requirements. We are here to help and support you with these decisions.

*Finance is available upon application to assist with the costs associated in satisfying the families wishes for a funeral service.

It is widely accepted to pre-arrange your own funeral or that of a family member well in advance. Organising a funeral and paying for it in advance is very common and will certainly alleviate any financial pressure on the family.
