Low Cost Affordable Funerals

The first thing to remember here is that when looking for affordable funerals the internet is your friend. It can be a difficult time for families but a little research will pay dividends. You may not find the cheapest //or lowest cost option straight away but low cost companies are characterised by open pricing – so if you cand see pricing on the first page that you land on the best advice is to keep looking – try another company. The //Competition and markets authority has seen fit to require all funeral directors to display their prices in a standard form since September 2021 and although the interpretation of this standard form seems open to //interpretation (some larger groups for example don’t let you choose the time or date of the service within the standard pricing and some funeral directors use the word “from” (indicating that you are likely to pay more //if you require anything otherer than simply cremation at a time of the funeral directors choice. The second thing to think about is the ultimate ownership of any funeral director. The CMA report
makes clear that large groups (Dignity, Co_Op, Funeral Partners etc) who may still be using the name of a trusted local funeral director consistently have average higher prices up to £1500 more than local independent funeral directors and that their prices go up each year at a faster rate – our advice would be to avoid the large groups if you want an affordable funeral. Thirdly, is the company that you are looking at a funeral director or something else – a number of well funded companies with call centres have set themselves up as funeral directors in recent years when in fact they are nothing of the kind – they may (or may not) have a large mortuary facility elsewhere in the country. They may use a local funeral director to subcontract some or all of the work – for example if a hearse on the funeral day is a £500 option or a visit in the chapel of rest is not even possible then my advice would be to look elsewhere. Finally, having narrowed down your search. Work our what you want. Check the website numbers. Calculate what you think the funeral should cost and then ring your top choice(s) and start asking questions. A modern funeral director wont mind you asking questions and will welcome the chance to explain things that seem unclear. My research has in fact narrowed the option in my local area to goSimply funerals – not just simply cremations but advice on home funerals and eco friendly options – my top pick - and if you are after direct cremation they offer that too! PS if you have asked a funeral director to collect your loved one and then find a better choice of funeral director for you it’s never a problem to change your mind
