What are the payment terms?
For the simple funeral (link) we require full payment to be made upon finalising the funeral arrangements and at least 72 hours prior to the funeral taking place.
For all other funerals we offer payment in two stages:
- All disbursements (link) must be paid for upon finalising the funeral arrangements and at least 72 hours prior to the funeral taking place. These are the fees that we pay on your behalf and include but are not limited to Burial or cremation fees, minister, church and celebrant fees, newspaper notices, stonemasons fees for the removal of a headstone, order of service booklets and flowers. These will be fully detailed on the estimate that is given to you when the arrangements are made.
- Our fees are invoiced after the funeral and are payable within 7 days of the invoice date.
We do offer a reduction of £75 for all funerals paid in full prior to the funeral taking place. We are a small privately owned business and we greatly appreciate when families are able to do this.
Any invoices unpaid after 7 days are managed by SAIF Resolve, the debt recovery specialists for the funeral profession. Interest will be added at a rate of 8% per month and all fees incurred in the recovery including legal and court costs will be added to the amount due.
