All our funerals are bespoke and individually tailored, whether it be simple, eco/green, contemporary or traditional.

The choice is yours and we strongly believe that you should only pay for what you need or choose specifically.

Aaron Bewley and the Team will take you through all the options available to you,

and still encourage families to actively take part in not only organising of the funeral but where possible,

take as much part on the day of the funeral if they want.

We aim for our costs to be clear and transparent to you beforehand and are committed to providing affordable funerals that suit your budget.

Here you can find a copy of our full price list.

Terms of Business

The balance is due within 21 days of the date of the funeral.

We accept payment by bacs, credit or debit card.

We reserve the right to add interest at 1.5% compound per month on all accounts outstanding after the due date. All costs incurred in recovering an outstanding account are chargeable to the debtor.
