Funeral Terms and Conditions

Our funeral invoice will be sent to you 7 days after the funeral. Full payment is due within 30 days from the date of invoice.

We ask for a deposit equal to the total amount of third party costs (e.g. crematorium or cemetery fees). Where satisfied that there are adequate funds available to settle the funeral account, we may, at our sole discretion, agree not to require a deposit.

Our professional services charge of £1050 includes a discount of £360 provided full payment is made within 30 days. At our sole discretion, we may agree to extend the period for payment to 60 days, however the funeral will no longer qualify for our discounted professional services charge of £1050. In this event an amended invoice will be issued with our full professional services charged at £1410.

Failure to pay may result in court action in which a court may award judicial expenses and interest.
