A quote for a respectful, basic funeral will include:
- the funeral director’s services (making arrangements and handling the paperwork)
- transfer of the deceased person from the place of death, and care of them before the funeral
- a coffin
- a hearse to the nearest crematorium or cemetery
There may be extra fees for viewings (typically around £100), crematorium and cemetery fees, embalming and flowers. There may be reductions if you are prepared to book the Crematorium before 10am.
