We have built our strong reputation on the basis that everyone deserves personal attention and continuity of attention from their individual funeral director. We are a small team of SAIF qualified and trained Funeral Directors. We take great pride in knowing the people we look after and take great care for attention all details. Our aim is to make the funeral what the family would wish it to be, regardless of religion, beliefs or intentions.
Our charges are based on personal care of the family and their loved ones alike and we are very proud of the extensive testimonials we receive.
Our charges are completely bespoke for each individual funeral so that you don’t pay for anything you don’t want in terms of service and you really do get exactly what you paid for.
We are very competitive and will happily offer an estimate over the phone based on your requirements. We will always include disbursements in our estimate so that there are no hidden extras to pay for. We firmly believe in transparency of costs and charges and will always provide accurate estimates of all costs to avoid any misunderstandings. We will never provide a low estimate to then add to it once you designate us.
In all aspects of the funeral arrangements, our funeral director will point out the procedures and legal requirements as applicable to every stage of the funeral. Whilst arranging the funeral, he or she will advise on costs and charges. WE believe in transparency of costs and will maintain that throughout. Within 24 hours of arranging the funeral with us you would normally receive a written confirmation of all the arrangements and costings.
The funeral account itself will be divided into two parts, our charges and disbursements paid on your behalf.
We are very proud of the vehicles we provide which are always modern, highly maintained and detailed and air conditioned for your comfort. Traveling in comfort and well maintained vehicles takes an extra stress away from you, in terms of logistics and arriving for the service on time and unflustered.
