Full visibility of your funeral plan costs
At The Martins, we believe that it’s important to give our clients complete transparency with the costs involved in planning a funeral – with no hidden charges. No two funerals are exactly the same and your choices for a unique service will determine the final cost. But as a guide, see our pricing as follows;
Our Limited Service Funeral
Being a member of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors we are able to offer a funeral service to cover the arrangements necessary for a very simple cremation or graveside burial service. This funeral will include the provision of the hearse, necessary staff, our basic coffin and local collection of the deceased within normal working hours (Mon to Fri, 9.00 am to 5.00 pm). There will be no dressing of the deceased, no viewing in our chapel of rest and we are unable to handle donations, obituary notices or service sheets on your behalf. No limousine is provided in this service, and the hearse will meet mourners at the cemetery or crematorium.
The cost of this service is £1795.00 PLUS disbursement charges.
