COVID-19 Information

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 we have been committed to looking after our families to the best of our ability.

We are working closely with the  government and the funeral sector to make sure we provide you with the best possible service under the current restrictions, whilst providing necessary protection to both you, your family and our staff.

The current message from the Government is that funerals should continue as far as possible, for now, but take into account all of the guidelines issued for minimising the risk of transmission. This includes the need to protect at-risk groups, to avoid large gatherings of people, for good hand hygiene and the avoiding of unnecessary physical contact.

We are taking steps to ensure all initial contact with the family (e.g. the arrangement meeting) is conducted remotely, for example, by telephone or email. So please do not feel offended if we ask to conduct the arrangements remotely as the current Government-advise is for everybody to stay at home. If you are calling us following the death of a loved one at home, you must tell us if the person has died of the Covid-19 Coronavirus or if you are showing symptoms of it. Again, please do not be offended by this, we may also ask you if this is the case; we need to ensure as far as possible the safety of you and our staff at all times. If you need to contact us about arranging a funeral and are already affected by the Covid-19 virus, rest assured, we will do our utmost to help you facilitate the funeral arrangement.

Direct Cremation Service

Under the current conditions and restrictions that we are all facing, direct cremations are a good choice for those that are unable to travel or attend due to shielding and self-isolation. Families are taking the option of having this service but also thinking of arranging a memorial service to remember and celebrate their loved one on a later date or even on a special birthday or anniversary.

The direct cremation provides a simple but dignified service attended only by the Funeral Director and bearers. We will arrange the following:

  • Collection of the deceased within office hours, (a surcharge of £75 will apply outside these hours).
  • All necessary required paperwork.
  • Doctor’s Fees
  • A simple foiled coffin
  • The crematorium fee (day, date and time arranged by the funeral director)
  • Transportation to the crematorium in private ambulance
  • Arrangement for ashes to be scattered in the garden of rest or collected by family.

*There maybe additional charges for oversized coffin

Inclusive price of: £999.00 (payment in full within 3 days) *There maybe additional charges for oversized coffin.

We will help you through the process
every step of the way.
