Paying For The Funeral
you’ll always know what the funeral you’ve arranged will cost.
You can also use the family login button at the top of this page to see the current total including any amendments you may have made. Payments can also be made safely on-line here too.
How to pay for the funeral
For a direct cremation the full amount is payable at the time of making arrangements.
For a simple “standardised” funeral the full amount is payable 48 hours before the funeral takes place.
For a tailored funeral you’ll need to pay the estimated disbursements at least 4 days before the funeral.
These are simply payments that we need to make on your behalf, to third parties for the funeral to go ahead.
After the funeral, you’ll receive an invoice for the balance to be paid within 14 days. This is in line with most funeral providers.
A loan through Funeral Safe
If you’d prefer to pay for the funeral in monthly instalments, you can do this through our partner Funeral Safe who offer
credit agreements at 15.9% APR. Click here or ask your arranger for more information.
