Funeral Charges

BREAKDOWN OF CHARGES

As members of the National Association of Funeral Directors we are required to provide you with an itemised breakdown of our charges in order to comply with our Code of Practice as previously drawn up in conjunction with the Office of Fair Trading should you instruct us. You will receive an Estimate of Cost based on our fully inclusive services.

The disbursement charges are in addition to our charges as listed here.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES FEE £2230(A)

This charge is equivalent in its nature to that which is levied by other professionals such as barristers, solicitors, accountants etc., although the sum we charge is far less per hour than these other professionals.

The amount includes making all the necessary arrangements with a professionally qualified funeral director for cremation or burial, preparing and attending to all essential documentation, making and receiving all necessary telephone calls, arranging for all the essential elements for the funeral to be carried out on a specific day within a specified time period, receiving floral tributes, placement of obituary notices, payment of all disbursements on behalf of clients (please note that the actual cost of the disbursements which will be charged to you in accordance with the disbursements required are not included in the Service Charge/Professional Fees figure), provision of all necessary staff to provide a dignified service, provision of a 24 hour telephone line, 364 day personal service for the assistance and support of clients during and after their period of bereavement.

The prices assume the funeral is arranged and conducted in Cardiff or Vale of Glamorgan area. For services outside this area there is an additional mileage charge of £1.50 per mile and a £50 per funeral operative charge for each 2 hour or part thereof.(A) Please note that the above fee will be reduced by £300 provided payment is received within 84 days of the funeral service.
