How to get an accurate and useful Funeral Price

As you may have discovered there are many sites around offering prices for funerals; most of them will give you an estimate from the limited choices that are offered.

Some supply the price by way of an SMS message while others are a return message to your E-mail address.

Frequently this price is grossly under stated or completely incorrect and misleading, only because the website has not shown all the options that are available.

To choose a funeral that suits your personal and financial needs we have compiled a list of items that should be considered when preparing and making funeral arrangements.

Look at the incomplete list below and choose the options that best suit your circumstances, make a note of them and when our consultant calls you have all the information ready:
