Payment of account
Finch & Sons operates a pricing policy in compliance with the Code of Practice of the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.
Our price list provides clients with a full and detailed explanation of our charges as required by the Code.
In addition to our charges, disbursements must be paid to Doctors, Minister of Religion, Cemetery or Cremation fees and such like.
When the funeral plans are completed you will be given a written estimate of all the charges incurred by the service you have requested. You will be asked to pay a deposit of 50% of the total estimate no later than 1 week before the funeral takes place.
We ask for this estimate to be signed as consent that you accept the charges and will be liable for payment of the account when submitted. This is usually 14 days after the funeral.
We reserve the right to add interest on all outstanding accounts at 2% per month on accounts that remain unpaid after 60 days and any legal and court costs incurred due to non-payment.
If, because of your circumstances, you have tomake a claim for assistance from the Department of Work and Pensions, please note that stringent rules apply as to the amount of help available. Please talk to us, in confidence, for guidance.
Here at Finch & Sons we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to provide the products and services you have requested from us. We will never pass your details on to any other company.
