Funeral Costs

At Richardsons we pride ourselves in organising individual Funerals.  We understand that every funeral is different and that it is your personal choice of what or what not to have at a funeral, therefore we can offer you a choice of competitively priced options for whatever your budget is.

We would respectfully advise that when comparing funeral costs with other funeral directors, you ensure that any quotes given are inclusive of all the service elements you require. Disbursement costs should be exactly the same as these are third party fees made payable on your behalf ie Church, Churchyard, Cemetery, Ministers, Celebrants, Crematorium and doctor’s medical cremation fees.
