Guide for funeral service types and prices

The Bespoke Funeral
Creating a unique service.  We endeavour to provide you what you wish for and our Funeral Director will be glad to assist and advise you of the posibilities. 
Our prices include the items and services necessary for the funeral.  We differ to some Funeral Directors by not offering a cheap headline price followed by many add ons for every little item or service. 

General
We work with Chanterlands, Haltemprice, Octon Grange and Lelley Fields Crematoria.  We will advise on prices upon request.
The price guides above are very accurate to what you are likely to pay. The usual extra items we do not include are flowers, press notices and orders of service, all of which we can provide if requested.  Everything is explained and agreed beforehand, so you will not have any unwanted or unexpected surprises after the funeral.
We can offer you a choice of coffins and venues for these funeral types with costs changing depending on your specification.  For full pricing information please click here, but you may find it an easier process just to talk to one of our funeral directors.

Choosing a Funeral Director
Most importantly your funeral director should be experienced, empathetic, reliable, well equipped, employing trained permanent staffed to provide highly professional care for your loved one and to assist you and your family in a time of grief.  If you are looking for a funeral director in Hull and surrounding areas, please consider us:

Transparent Pricing - Arranging a funeral can be an extremely challenging and difficult time. We aim to make sure there are no hidden costs whatsoever and are completely open with you throughout the process.

Personal Touch - We understand that upholding and cherishing the memory of your loved one is invaluable. We will help you to create a special goodbye that is unique to your loved one's preferences and wishes.

Our highly experienced Funeral Directors will make the arrangement with you, rather than a ‘junior arranger’, so he or she can fully appreciate directly your wishes and then personally organise the funeral to the agreed instructions.  Other than for holidays and unforeseen absence, the Funeral Director who has made the arrangement will be the person conducting the funeral on the day.  Our Funeral Directors like to look after clients throughout the journey of our contact with you.

Generations of families come back to use us.  If you have used our services before, then you will have experienced the extent of our high level of care and service we provide to your loved ones.   Straightforwardly put, we help lighten the burden for families when they need support and empathy the most.  Clients, who we regard as our families, have total confidence in our service, knowing that we will guide them through all aspects of the process up to and including the funeral. 

We would be honoured to be your choice of Funeral Director.
