We often get enquiries from members of the public who have been telephoning around funeral directors comparing prices. When considering funeral directors, it is possible to be misled into believing that all companies provide the same quality of products and level of service and that price should be the only determining factor in your decision. This is not the case and funeral companies will differ greatly in the quality of their products and the standard of their professional services which should be reflected in their price.
To ensure you choose a funeral company that will provide you with the quality of product and service you require you must look beyond the headline price and consider other factors such as reputation, standard of facilities and experience of staff.
The price we quote reflects the quality of our products and the service we provide which may be of a higher standard than other funeral director directors you are comparing us with. As an independent family-owned business, however, we have the flexibility to be able to tailor our pricing very much to the individual requirements of a family or to reflect the instructions or wishes left by the person who has died.
We are members of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) and our facilities and service are monitored by them to ensure we provide the highest level of service. We would be pleased to meet with you at our premises where you can consider our facilities and meet our staff with no obligation to engage our company.
We are happy to give an estimate of the likely costs of a funeral before a commitment has been made to entrust us with funeral arrangements. We do prefer to do that following a meeting face to face as that way we have a better understanding of what your requirements are, or what your budget may be, and we can then give you all the options that are available to you to make an informed decision.
