A Little About Us
“We are not just a collection service – we care”
Our Funeral Service is here to assist you at the most difficult of times and to offer you advice in a practical but compassionate manner.
As we are all aware the cost of a funeral is rising year on year but we can help by offering our Direct Cremation service to lay your loved one/friend to rest in a dignified way but at a low budget cost avoiding added stress caused by worrying about the cost of the funeral.
Our funeral arrangers are fully experienced at caring for the deceased and the families left behind. The transportation, care and cremation of the deceased is carried out using professional vehicles and uniformed staff.
It is sometimes difficult to get everyone together for a funeral service due the transient nature of family life and work commitments, not everyone can get time off, so why not have the memorial service at a time to suit everyone?
The fee is inclusive of cremation fees and our professional fees but not Doctor’s certification.
* The current standard doctor’s fee is £164 to allow cremation to take place
Where HM Coroner has issued the cremation certificate, doctor’s fees do not apply
Price on application.
(Estimate £80 to £260.00) Depending on length of accommodation hire due to availability of the doctors, “if you choose a local funeral director it will most probably be much more”

I just wanted to let you know how satisfied I am with your service from start to finish. I was kept informed every step of the way. The respect shown to me and my late partner gives credit to the name of your company. You were so compassionate and caring all the way through that it helped me in my grief to know you were taking care of both of us.
I am eternally grateful for the genuine care and compassion given to me and my Mum when she passed away. Thank you so much Gordon for your prompt attention to every detail. Nothing was too much for you. You are a truly kind man. With Kindest Regards. AD.

Thank you for your kind consideration.It was certainly a relief for my wife and I to have such efficient and expeditious service.We were under a lot of pressure given the short time to get things organized and under control. Your service went a long way in helping us do that.

Very many thanks for all the help you gave us last Friday I think we gave **** the quiet, dignified ceremony he would have liked. Your attention to detail was hugely appreciated, it is quite difficult for families to focus at times like this and the guidance you gave us meant the day ran smoothly.
Thank you both for all your help. We had a lovely celebration for him and it was perfect. I would definitely recommend your services to others.
So pleased, can’t fault your service from start to finish. I am so pleased we found you and good luck with your business
