Payment Terms

Once the funeral arrangements have been completed you will be given a written confirmation of the arrangements together with an estimate of both our charges and the disbursements payable to various other authorities (such as a cemetery or crematorium, minister, florist etc.).

At this time you will be asked to pay the disbursements either by cash, cheque, credit or debit card.

We require this payment to be made at least 48 hours prior to the date of the funeral.

Many other Funeral Directors have operated this practice for some time and it is with regret that we find it necessary to adopt this policy.
