We honestly believe that as a small, family run funeral service, we are in the best position to offer families the very best possible service, but at the most competitive prices.
The price of a funeral is made up of two parts. Firstly, the cost of the services provided by the funeral director and secondly, the disbursements. Disbursements are fees paid before the funeral on the family’s behalf. These include costs like Cremation fee, Church fees and Doctor’s fees. Please note, the disbursements are the same regardless of the funeral director and should always be charged “at cost”...
Finch & Sons fees
Rather than giving an itemised list of the many different items involved, we prefer to quote one figure which includes everything we do for you in relation to the funeral. This includes everything, from collecting the deceased from the place of death, right through to the hearse and staff who attend on the day of the funeral. This figure also includes a high quality oak veneered coffin, and unlimited use of our chapel of rest, during normal working hours £1,650
