How Do We Do It?

It is only right and proper to question how we can provide a dignified funeral for hundreds of pounds less than our competitors. We welcome any inspection of our premises, vehicles or staff and are happy to come and talk to you with no obligation to use our services.

Our Christian values require us to offer high quality service at a fair price, passing on savings directly to the customer where possible and ensuring that our profits are sensible and modest.

As a family-owned business our shareholders are more interested in service excellence for the bereaved than in demanding ever increasing dividends.

So how do we keep our costs low?

  • We buy our coffins at good prices from a local supplier;
  • We use beautiful pre-loved vehicles rather than brand new hearses and limousines that cost over £100,000 each;
  • We serve families in a wide area, even offering a streamlined, very simple cremation service that is arranged on-line or by telephone;
  • Each new branch we open is carefully managed and we don’t have the overheads of a big corporate head office or regional and area managers with their big salaries and company cars;

Dear Brian,

Just a quick email to congratulate you and your team, for what I perceived to be a thoroughly professional and well executed funeral yesterday - it was exceptionally well organised, there was real care and commitment evident, and you were all a pleasure to work with!

Many thanks and well done... You are all welcome back anytime.
