Payment Options

Payment for our services may be made by card, cheque, cash or bank transfer. We recommend payment by card, and accept VISA, Maestro, MasterCard or American Express. No surcharge is payable.

Recent years have seen many changes in the way funeral accounts are presented and settled. The once acceptable norm of making payment weeks or even months following a funeral is now, unfortunately, very much a thing of the past.

Financial constraints require that most funeral directors now require either a deposit, or at least, payment of the 'disbursements' (those external fees for services not provided directly by the undertaker), prior to the funeral taking place.

Most undertakers find themselves no longer able to sustain the current high cost of providing the substantial unsecured credit to their clients that was once the 'norm', and via their account.

We recognise that pre-payment for a funeral, in full, and at the time of need is the way forward. This allows us to save up to 30% off the cost our professional fees. We pass this saving directly back to our clients, in the form of our reduced charges.

Choosing a service from us requires full payment prior to the funeral taking place, unless guarantee of payment is received in writing from a recognised professional or bank. All prices shown on this website assume pre-funeral settlement.

Post-funeral payment, where this has been agreed, will incur a surcharge.
