Bespoke ‘Burial’ Funeral

This is our comprehensive ‘Bespoke’ option, priced according to what you choose to have, and therefore you don’t end up paying for what you don’t want, as in some other ‘Fixed Price’ packages which some firms like to offer.

So what’s included?

Our ‘Bespoke’ option is for those who need to ensure that they have as much choice as possible without any ‘restricted minimalistic services’.

  • Advice
  • Arrangements
  • All relevant paperwork and administration
  • Collection within ‘Office Hours’*
  • Funeral Director on day of funeral
  • Managing donations
