Traditional Funeral - £1995

Our traditional funeral package offers families in London, Hertfordshire  and Essex with a caring and dignified, more elaborate funeral service. The Traditional Funeral package outlined below can be adapted and tailored to suit your needs with clear and transparent additional fees.

Funeral Costs, Explained

The cost of a funeral is made up of two different types of fees:

  1. Funeral Director fees and services: These cover all of the aspects of arrangements such as paperwork, coordination between various parties (e.g. crematorium or cemetery), care of the deceased and similar.
  2. Disbursement costs: These are third-party costs associated with the funeral, such as doctor’s fees and officiant fees.

These are outlined below.
