This simple funeral package costs around half what many other funeral directors would charge, but we won’t make any compromises to keep the cost down.
Our company was created in the first place to have lower overheads which helped us to provide a long overdue alternative to the widespread routine overcharging by many long established high street funeral directors. As a consequence we have been leading the way forward in Derbyshire with our honest highly ethical approach and clear transparent pricing.
During this time the situation has started to change and we are very pleased that the serious issues of overcharging and lack of price transparency has now been recognised by the UK Government.
Their latest report uncovered serious concerns that in some cases funeral directors both large and small have taken advantage of families at a time of vulnerability. The Government are still assessing the situation before taking action and we very much welcome their much needed involvement.
In the meantime we advise that great care should be taken to avoid excessive charges or being encouraged to spend more than intended or is necessary. Our simple Traditional Markeaton Crematorium Funeral package solves all such problems so please read on to discover more.
It assumes that the funeral itself would take place at Markeaton Crematorium however we can easily adapt the package for other nearby crematoria for very little extra cost. Please talk to us if that is the case and we will provide a precise quotation for your personal requirements at the first point of contact.
Our package looks, feels and genuinely is in every respect a high quality funeral service worthy of any loved one. We only use the very best handmade coffins and our vehicles and staff are always immaculately presented.
After having attended several hundred funerals stretching back over a decade around Derbyshire we know which celebrants can write and present the most personal of eulogies. So if you leave the choice to us you can be assured we will only work with the very best funeral celebrants in the area.
Please take a moment or two to read some of our reviews from families we have helped in the last few years. These personal stories speak volumes about the quality of our funeral services and the genuinely sincere care we provide.
