Open pricing, simple terms

We have always operated with a completely open and transparent pricing policy, so were delighted when the Competition and Markets Authority changed the law for our industry to make all firms comply.

You can download all of the pricing information you see along with that of the crematoriums.

Embalming

We only carry out embalming if we believe it to be absolutely necessary, for the benefit of the family and also the deceased. In the past there has been the misconception that a body has to be embalmed to be viewed. This is not the case and you should be specifically asked if you would like embalming to occur and not be led to agree to it under the guise of “hygienic treatment”. Of course, should the deceased need to be repatriated then embalming is carried out with regards to the regulations.
