This is the page everyone is fascinated by. To be quite honest, use a traditional style coffin, like the Chiltern Oak you will see here, and give the rest to a charity. There I have said it and my Funeral Director friends and foes will be sucking the air through their teeth. We don’t encourage you to buy “upmarket” coffins or caskets.
If we have, or come to think of even if we have not, been able to assist you with a burial, we will be very happy to continue that assistance and go on to provide you with your headstone or other monumental masonry requirements. More blurb on that page.
We are funeral directors, and yes we are also a business, and we employ 9 staff and several casual staff as well. They all live in the local area. They are well paid, (I would like to pay them more). Funerals are expensive, and if we can help you keep the cost to a minimum, whilst still having the fitting service with dignity and respect, that your loved one deserves, then we will be happy. You may find funeral directors who say funerals are not expensive and who offer to help at a reduced charge.
