Funeral Costs can be broken down into two areas:

1 – The Funeral Directors Fees for Professional Services

Our fees are for dealing with all aspects of the funeral including:

  • Bringing a loved one into our care.
  • All hygienic treatments necessary.
  • Arranging the funeral.
  • The hearse and staff for the funeral.

Optional Extras

You are able to choose a different coffin to suit the personality of your loved one.  We offer a range including traditional, wicker, eco friendly and themed coffins. We can also provide Orders of Service which families and mourners often like to keep a copy of to remember their loved one by.  We will personalise these to match exactly what your loved one would want.   These will incur additional costs.

2 – Disbursements

These are costs that we pay on your behalf and include:

  • Cremation fees charged by the local council.
  • Doctors fees – two doctors must agree on and certify the cause of death.

Some of these costs are unavoidable whilst others can be tailored to your own personal preferences.

A friend recommended you to us as they were satisfied with the full service and we will do the same as we could not fault anything, everything was done in a supportive and caring way.


Thank you for all your help during such a heart breaking and difficult time. We will never be able to thank you enough however, please accept our gift as a token of our appreciation. You are a credit to Melia Powell! All our love S and M.


How do you start to say thank you to all the staff who made the passing of my husband. You all made us feel important and you helped us though these hard times. Mrs S and family.


Thank you so, so much Brian from the bottom of our hearts and thank you to all your very special team for giving Ian such a beautiful and wonderful send off. We will all miss him greatly, he was such a lovely caring person and the “biggest torment” ever (we loved him). Thank you Brian for all the lovely personal touches you gave to Ian and his family. So a big, big thank you from all his family.

Can I attend?

Yes, this includes a service at the crematorium for the family and friends of the deceased.

Can I collect the ashes?

Of course, they can be collected from our head office usually within 48 hours. You will need to take some form of identification for the ashes to be released to you. After 28 days some crematoriums will make a charge for storage.

Can you collect the ashes and return them to me?

Yes. However if you live more than 25 miles from our nearest office there will be a charge of £60 to cover courier costs (UK only, international couriers are available by individual quotation).

What else can I do with the ashes?

These can be scattered or buried at a location of your choice, stored in a lovely urn or casket, transformed into jewellery, incorporated into fireworks…simply speak to one of our team about what you would like.

Is this a communal cremation?

Absolutely not. In the UK each person is cremated individually and we always ask for a certificate confirming the identity of each set of remains.

Do you re-use the coffin?

Absolutely not. UK crematoriums only accept people for cremation if they are in a suitable coffin and it cannot be opened once received by the crematorium staff.

What kind of coffin do you provide?

We provide a high quality traditionally shaped coffin that has 6 handles, flower holders and is fully lined.
