Recommended by both the Good Funeral Guide and the Natural Death Centre

Our company ethos is based around 4 key values:

Advice & Support
We give people full, independent advice about all their rights and options. We don’t limit our advice to suit our own business needs and to make life easier for us.
We don’t make assumptions about what’s right for you. We let you decide exactly what you want and then we help you achieve this.
We enable families to be fully involved in the planning and delivery of the funeral and we fully support those who wish to participate in the care of their loved ones.
We offer all our families the same level of support, no matter what service they require or how much they spend with us.

Giving time
We give you time to talk, time to think, time to consider ideas and options and time to make thoughtful, considered decisions. We never rush you into making quick decisions or commit you to anything at the first meeting.
You can come and see us as many times as you like and ask as many questions as you want.
We never limit family visits, either in frequency or duration, and you can spend as much time as you want with your loved one in our beautiful Serenity Room.
We only ever undertake a single funeral on any day so we can give you our full attention without distraction.

Choice & Flexibility
We realise that a standard Crematorium or Church funeral is not right for everyone.
That’s why we have a range of services that are designed to help you achieve exactly the type of funeral that’s right for you. We offer a variety of different venues, including beautiful barns and village halls, to suit every kind of funeral requirement.
We never make assumptions about the kind of funeral that’s right for you. We start with a blank canvas and help you achieve exactly what you want.

Value for money
We provide a range of services to suit different needs and budgets.
We charge a sensible price for a very personal and bespoke service. We do not compete with other companies on cost as this would limit the level of service we are able to offer.
We do not maintain a fleet of expensive cars that require us to charge expensive rates.
We charge a Professional Fee to cover our overheads and time and, unlike other funeral directors, we do not make any hidden profit on funeral goods such as coffins and flowers.

      What is a Direct Cremation?

      A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

      • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
      • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
      • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

      The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

      • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
      • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
      • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
      • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family

      Attended funeral

      This is Funeral Choice’s best estimate of this Funeral Director’s fees for an Attended Funeral, which is where family and friends have a ceremony or service for the deceased person at the same time as they attend their burial or cremation.

      This price includes the following:

      • Taking care of all necessary legal and administrative arrangements
      • Collecting and transporting the deceased person from the place of death (normally within 15 miles of the funeral director’s premises) into the funeral director’s care
      • Care of the deceased person before the funeral in appropriate facilities.
      • Providing a suitable coffin
      • Optional viewing of the deceased person for family and friends, by appointment with the funeral director
      • At a date and time you agree with the funeral director, taking the deceased person direct to the agreed cemetery or crematorium (normally within 20 miles of the funeral director’s premises) in a hearse or other appropriate vehicle

      In addition to the Funeral Director’s fee, there will be third party costs to consider (sometimes called disbursements) to cover the other aspects of a funeral (such as the crematorium or burial fees). Your chosen Funeral Director will be able to provide these for you.

      Unattended funeral

      This is Funeral Choice’s best estimate of this Funeral Director’s fees and the crematorium fee for an Unattended Funeral, which is where family and friends may choose to have a ceremony, event or service for the deceased person, but they do not attend the burial or cremation itself. This is also known as a Direct Cremation.

      This price includes the following:

      • Funeral Director's fees
      • Crematorium fee (for an unattended funeral) as selected by the Funeral Director

      In addition to this fee, there might be additional third party costs to consider (sometimes called disbursements). Your chosen Funeral Director will be able to explain these for you.

      If you wish to attend the funeral, you should view the “Attended Funeral” price instead.
