Pricing

Every Funeral is treated as a bespoke service for you and your family.

SUMMARY PRICE LIST 2023

 

Non Attended? Simple? Traditional? Personalised?..or a combination of all of those? Every Funeral is treated as a bespoke service for you and your family. We don’t aim to be cheap by cutting corners but equally we won’t overcharge you or try and get you to buy things you neither want nor need.

We do however offer several ‘package’ type funerals and its good to show these because they give you a very good indication of the total price (See Below). All Package examples are based on Woodlands Crematorium, Scarborough unless stated otherwise but can be adapted.

The result is that we offer you the best service at a fair price, without compromise or restriction.

We also do Pre-paid funeral plans through ‘Open Pre-paid Funerals’ who are highly recommended by the ‘Good Funeral Guide’. Open Pre-paid Funerals is a Trust Fund regulated by the FPA so your Money is safe! More details on ‘prepaid Funerals page’

Our Fees for Funerals

We offer a bespoke Funeral Director Service fee of £1550 – £1700 (if more than one venue). This includes a traditional black Mercedes Hearse or a ‘Private Hearse’. We only use British manufactured coffins and these start at £350 fully lined and fitted.

Non Attended Cremation (+Plus)

£1,400

Why choose this option?

The Non Attended Cremation is a practical low-cost option that covers these elements. Whilst suitable for those on a budget, this plan is also perfect for those who wish to break from tradition and remember their loved one in their own way with a memorial afterwards. We will organise a simple unattended cremation, leaving families the opportunity to ‘do their own thing’. The +Plus is that your loved one will be looked after in Scarborough and we offer more than the national industrialised cremation services you may have seen. Please call in to discuss what makes us different.

What this offers you:

  • Collection of the person from Scarborough (+£100 out of hours call)
  • Transport to our premises in Scarborough.
  • Doctors’ fees.
  • Our fees.
  • Ashes can be collected
  • A coffin with name-plate* larger coffin sizes may incur an additional £100
  • Crematorium fees

Simple Send Off

From £2,995

Why choose this option?

Many people state they do not want their family spending a lot of money on their funeral! The Simple Send-Off limits you to the earlier, less costly time at Woodlands Crematorium. Out of hours call out will incur £100 fee. We meet at the crematorium on the day of the funeral.

What this offers you:

  • Collection of the person from the hospital, nursing home or your home (in the Scarborough area)
  • Transport to our premises in Scarborough.
  • Doctors’ fees.
  • A British made basic Coffin.
  • Cremation service at Woodlands with earlier (less expensive) times at the Crematorium.
  • Guidance on service content. You can of course choose a Celebrant or Religious Minister.

Traditional Funeral

£3,500

Why choose this option?

This is the traditional send off that many people want. Tradition is familiar and can make people feel comforted and at ease. For many families a traditional looking funeral with black hearse and formal dress is absolutely the right choice. These recognisable symbols of mourning provide great comfort and have long been a mark of respect. If this is right for you, we can help you hold a truly meaningful and very affordable traditional funeral.

What this offers you:

  • Collection of the person from the hospital, nursing home or your home (Scarborough area).
  • Transport to our premises in Scarborough.
  • Doctors fees.
  • A British made basic, or Wooden Veneer Coffin (this is our recommendation for a traditional service)
  • Preparation of the person, dressing and viewing in our chapel of rest.
  • A Hearse
  • Cremation at Woodlands (prices vary depending on time chosen)
  • A Celebrant or Vicar (prices vary depending on who you choose)
  • The ability to personalise in any way you want e.g to use the Friends Meeting House

Hackness Grange Funeral

A very sensibly priced funeral at an amazing and exclusive location 10 minutes outside of Scarborough. The venue boasts a Pavilion on a small lake, with stunning facilities for an extended Wake should you wish to have one. All inclusive @£4,000 plus catering at £1500 for 40 people . We have been arranging Funeral services at Hackness for 4 years now and the feedback is incredible.

 

Additional items to factor in to your price:

Out of hours collection is £50 per person in Scarborough area (getting people out of bed at 3.00am in the morning deserves £50 we think!.. all the fee goes to the people who carry out the collection of your loved one). We may need 3 or more people depending on size and location.

  • Embalming (if requested) is £70-£120 (by a fully qualified technician)
  • Burials can incur additional costs due to extra bearing staff and associated time approx £150+
  • Order of Service is £2 per copy per sheet.
  • Flowers: £100-175 is all you really need to spend, you can always do the flowers yourself. This really personalises them and saves you money too.
  • Out of area costs: £1per mile plus labour costs (We don’t profit from this, just cover the costs)
  • Obituary: these vary in cost but an online version can be free.
  • Additional Limousines to our 2 cars are charged at cost price to us (Approx £200)
