Funeral Costs

A Service for Your Needs

We provide services from budget to more traditional on request to make sure it is right for your family.

We don’t believe in ‘funeral packages’, each person is different, and their funeral service should reflect that.

We publish our prices below for your information.
If you would prefer a bespoke funeral service with additional options, please let us know.

Funeral Prices – Price Transparency

We are confident that our prices represent true value to our families in their time of need. If you plan to make comparisons with other funeral homes, please be sure to check that you compare like for like and that all costs are included.

We are a member of SAIF and are inspected every year to ensure the highest level of service is carried out.

Wendy Ford

I cannot recommend Peter Melrose and his team any more highly. They have made what was an extremely difficult time less painful and fulfilled my mam's wishes to the very letter. Every step of the way I was informed of details and updates.

They were helpful, caring and compassionate and no question went unanswered or any problem unsolvable. They made my mams last journey a beautiful one and will be eternally grateful to them.
