Some common questions

It completely depends on what you want. We offer a variety of plans to suit all needs and budgets. Our most flexible plan is our tailor-made funeral plan, this allows you to choose all the elements of your funeral.

The cost of a tailor-made funeral varies depending on the elements you select, such as the coffin or flowers, as well as where you plan to hold the service. If you’re interested in an estimate of the funeral costs, please speak with your local funeral director.

Once you’ve explored all the options available, you can arrange to visit one of our funeral homes. Our team can offer advice or guidance on the elements involved, as well as help you with any paperwork.

There’s no administration charge for making changes. Just visit your local funeral director and let them know what you’d like to change. Simply pay for any services you’re adding to the plan, or if you are removing a service, we’ll refund you the amount you paid for it.
