Please find below standard terms of business for our funerals. If you have any questions, please ask your funeral director.

These terms of business apply to most funerals we provide. There may be occasions when we need to take full payment from you on the day of the arrangement. This will depend upon individual circumstances and/or the nature of the services being provided. If this applies, we will notify you either at the time of signing the Agreement with us or as soon as possible prior to the service taking place.

Payment Options

Cash, Cheque, Debit or Credit Card or Bank Transfer.

Late Payment

If you (our client) do not make full payment due to us by the due date for payment, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year, plus reimbursement costs of any expenses made by us, unless we have agreed alternative arrangements with you. This level of interest will be charged from the date on which payment was due until the date on which it is repaid in full, and you must pay us interest together with any overdue amount. Please note that if the invoice remains outstanding after 60 days of delivery, we may ask another company to collect or receive outstanding payments on our behalf.

DWP and Funeral Plans

If you have made or intend to make an application for a DWP Funeral Payment or any other financial assistance or grant to help you pay for the funeral, it is likely that it will only cover part of the Funeral Cost that you owe us. It is important to remember that in all these circumstances you will still be responsible to us for payment of any outstanding money in relation to the Funeral Cost. This also applies to any outstanding costs incurred with a pre-paid funeral plan.
