We believe that the cost of a funeral should be completely transparent, clearly laid out and easy to understand.
The 2020 Competition and Markets Authority investigation into the funeral profession identified a lack of clarity on pricing as a key area of concern.
We will provide a clear, full written estimate of the funeral costs and confirm your consent for us to continue once we have made the initial funeral arrangements. Usually we can give a verbal estimate to you during the initial consultation.
If you would like us to give you an estimate for the cost of a funeral, please contact us any time. Our advice is free. We will be happy to discuss your requirements.
Listed below are our current charges.
A Traditional Funeral, our most popular choice, gives you full scope for personalisation.

Our professional charges include our availability to you 24 hours a day for consultation and advice, making all necessary arrangements on your behalf following discussions at the location of your choice, and liaising with all necessary third parties.

For those who are aware that their loved ones would have wanted little fuss, when a service of any kind is not desired, or when cost is a consideration, our Unattended Cremation enables a simple, dignified cremation to take place with minimal fees. The crematorium has provision for a lower cost cremation to take place at 8:30am. There is no option for a service in the chapel, but you are able to attend outside to meet the coffin on arrival.
Our charges includes the fee for an unattended cremation at Colwyn Bay Crematorium at 8:30am, completing and delivering all necessary paperwork, any necessary doctor’s fees and a simple coffin, to be transferred to the crematorium in an appropriate funeral vehicle. Following the cremation, the ashes will be collected on your behalf.
We strongly believe that every family should have the opportunity to spend time with their loved ones before the funeral takes place if they wish. Our charges include the availability of our viewing room where appropriate.
|Our Total Fees(to help keep costs to a minimum, we require this fee to be paid in full in advance of the funeral)||£1,375.00|
