Civil Funerals

The fee includes our visit to see you, typically lasting up to two hours. We then devote our attention to writing the eulogy. This is usually emailed to you for any additions or corrections. After the service, you will receive a copy of the eulogy. Further copies can be obtained for a small fee.

Price on application after initial discussion of requirements.

The fee is payable prior to the funeral date. By prior arrangement the funeral director may take our fee.

Payment Schedule

We require a £100.00 initial non-refundable deposit to secure the date.
A further non-refundable stage payment of £100 will be required before a copy of the draft ceremony will be sent to you for agreement/amendment.
This amount (£200) will be deducted from the final invoice, which is payable a minimum of 14 days before the ceremony.

Remember – we only conduct one ceremony a day so we are exclusively yours for your special occasion for as long as you need us.

When you contact us to book your ceremony we require a £200 non-refundable deposit to secure the date. On receipt of the deposit we will send you confirmation of your booking either by post or email, together with some ceremony suggestions, an information gathering questionnaire and ideas for readings. You will probably have some ideas of your own about your ceremony, so we would like to talk to you either in person, by telephone or skype so that we can get a feel for the type of ceremony you would like and enable us to personalise the ceremony. Once we have spoken to you we will then draft the ceremony for your approval.  We can then redraft the ceremony if required to take account of any suggestions or amendments you have made. The final balance is due 30 days before the ceremony date. We will then be ready to meet you for a rehearsal (if you would like one) or on the day.
