DisburseAssociated Costs & Disbursements

 

There are normally 4 main costs associated with a funeral.

 

1. The Funeral Directors Fee (also called the Professional Service Fee)

 

This includes:

  • Arranging and conducting the funeral
  • Responsibility for all details involved in arranging the funeral service
  • Trained professional staff
  • Transfer of the deceased from place of death into our care - 24 hour service
  • Dignified mortuary care of the deceased

2. Coffin or Casket Costs

 

Firstly the difference between a coffin or casket is the shape. A coffin tapers towards the foot end whereas a casket is rectangular in shape. We have an extensive range of coffins and caskets and these can be made from particle board, custom wood through to solid timber or metal.

 

3. Cemetery or Crematorium Costs

 

Cemeteries and Crematoriums all have their own set of fees and charges and each differ from the other. Depending on which Cemetery is chosen and whether it be a burial or cremation will determine the cost.

 

4. Disbursements

These are normally items which are chosen by the family and we pay these costs on your behalf.
