FUNERAL CHARGES. - We have put together the following information to help you understand the final funeral account. Please remember, if you do select us as your Funeral Director, you are entrusting your loved one to a company that has built an enviable reputation for serving our community for nearly 60 years.
FUNERAL ACCOUNT - The funeral account comprises of two elements; Funeral Director’s Charges and Disbursements. Disbursements are the fees which the funeral director pays, on behalf of their client, to other parties involved in the funeral service; Crematoria, Newspapers, Ministers etc. We have no control over these fees and sometimes they can amount to more than the funeral director’s charges. It is our policy to ask for these fees as a deposit, as quite often they are paid prior to the funeral taking place.
