Funeral Director Charges

As a member of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) 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.

Whilst arranging the funeral, we will advise on the funeral directors charges and disbursement fees to be incurred, culminating in a written estimate.

When you feel confident with the funeral commitment you have arranged, we will ask you to sign the estimate of charges form to confirm these details.
