There are many elements that make up the costs of a burial service :

How it works

When someone dies it can be a difficult and confusing time.  We are available all hours to help bring your loved one into our care.

Once the necessary clearances have been obtained we will collect the person who has died and look after them in our mortuary. We do not undertake any invasive procedures such as embalming.

The next step in arranging a funeral is collating and  completing the required paperwork during the funeral arrangements. The information required is straightforward and we will guide you through the process.  We take care of all the required medical certificates or liase with the State Coroner.
