Open and transparent fees and costs

Funerals to suit all needs and budgets

At Brunskill Family Funerals we are here to help, and really care about what we do. We wanted to give you a clear idea of the costs involved with a funeral ceremony, to help you plan and prepare.

Brunskill Family Funerals can also provide a number of options for each package, detailed opposite. These are just a few of the more common additional services though we are willing to help with any request you may have.

Alternative coffins are also available for an additional cost.

The cost of funerals are typically separated into two types, the disbursements and the Funeral Director’s Charges (our packages and extras). The prices of our three funeral packages do not include disbursements.

In order for us to keep our overheads down and pass the savings onto you, we do require cleared funds one week prior to the funeral taking place. We will always provide written quotations, and confirm if any are subject to change. Payment can be made by either bank transfer, cash, DSS/DWP payments or debit card.
