Frequently Asked Questions:
No. Each person is buried individually in burial plots with an Exclusive Right of Burial Certificate and officially registered with a Government Body.
No.
In most circumstances, if you have chosen a Direct Burial then no-one can attend. However if you do wish to attend then the cost will be more due to fixing a time and booking staff etc.
We choose the time of day for the committal to take place which suits both us and the burial ground of our choice with no family or friends in attendance thus ensuring a lower fee.
We include our quality Bamboo Shroud, alternatively you can choose a plain cardboard coffin by adding £40 or upgrade to a simple traditional shaped wood effect coffin for an additional £75. These prices are only for a 6' x 22" coffin, for larger coffins please ask for a quote.

Additional Charges

Where bariatric (obese) factors are present we reserve the right to either decline or withdraw our services at any time.  Additional charges may be made for the use of additional personnel, larger vehicles and the cost of a larger coffin (over 6’2” x 22”)

Price on application.

In case of sudden unexplained death or accident (police involvement) and also if the deceased was not under a Doctor’s care within the last 14 days the death may be referred to the Coroner so collection from a private home or care home must first be carried out by a local Funeral Director to enable Doctors to carry out further checks.

(Estimate £80 – £200) We strongly recommend you consider choosing an Independent Funeral Director as the cost is likely to be more reasonable.

Where necessary the deceased may have to be transferred locally to the Coroner’s mortuary (the Coroner’s office / State take care of this part of the cost of moving)

Transfer of the Deceased from a place other than mainland England and Wales

About Our Company

“We are not just a collection service – we care”

Our funeral service is here to assist you at the most difficult of times and to offer you advice in a practical but compassionate manner.
As we are all aware the cost of a funeral is rising year on year but we can help by offering our direct service to lay your loved one/friend to rest in a dignified way but at a low budget cost avoiding added stress caused by worrying about the cost of the funeral.
Our funeral arrangers are fully experienced at caring for the deceased and the families left behind.
The transportation, care and laying to rest of the deceased is carried out using professional vehicles and uniformed staff.
It is sometimes difficult to get everyone together for a funeral service due the transient nature of family life and work commitments, not everyone can get time off, so why not have the memorial service at a time to suit everyone?

Registering a Death:

If The Coroner is involved:

Suddenly:

At Home / In a Nursing Home:

If in a Hospital:


Our express service is based on arranging funerals for people who have either died in hospital, in a hospice or who are currently being looked after by the Coroner.

1. Before we can collect the deceased we will require the Green Certificate for burial (Form 9) from the Registrar or the Order for Burial (Form 101) if the Coroner was involved.

2. We will also require release forms for the hospital mortuary or for the Funeral Director holding the deceased which we can either post or e-mail.

3. The Burial will take place upon receipt of all necessary paperwork and full cleared payment has been received. This can be by Debit/Credit Card, Bank Transfer or Cheque.
An invoice will be issued once we have received instructions.
