Funeral Costs Explained

You will always be provided with a written estimate of the funeral costs.

The funeral account itself is divided into two separate parts, the Funeral Directors charges and the disbursements.


These contain our professional fees and overhead costs, which include the provision of a 24 hour a day emergency service, our professional services in making the funeral arrangements, arranging documentation and necessary personal attendances. Also the conveyance of the deceased to our private chapel of rest  and the use of it for visiting mourners.

Relatives and friends often wish to visit the deceased and pay their last respects before the day of the funeral, and our peaceful chapel of rest is available to you.
Use of a traditional hearse for conveyance of the deceased to a burial site or crematorium is included.


Disbursements are essentially fees that we pay out on behalf of the family, and include burial or cremation fees, church / minister’s fees, celebrant fees, newspaper announcements etc.
Our written estimate will detail the approximate cost of any disbursements. However, you will appreciate that we will have no direct control over these charges, and they could therefore be subject to slight variations. In the Crewe, Nantwich and surrounding areas church fees vary, but cremation costs are fixed.

These costs can then be settled by a single funeral payment, rather than by separate bills to be settled by the estate.


Your account can be paid by cash, cheque or electronic bank transfer. A service charge is added to your account, but can be deducted if the account is paid in full within 10 days of receipt of the invoice.
