Funeral Expenses in Netherton

Funeral Expenses in Netherton

Funeral Expenses in NethertonWhile funeral expenses in Netherton are important factors to consider, give your loved one the farewell he or she deserves. At Barringtons, we believe that this event is something that only the family can truly arrange. We are there only to provide the assistance and advice. That’s why every funeral that we arrange is completely personalised and meaningful. We take you through the entire process, step by step, ensuring at every point that your needs, preferences and budget are kept paramount. Our funeral directors can provide a variety of options that help you to give your loved one a memorable tribute. The process includes the kind of ceremony you wish to include, religious function (or no ceremony if that’s what you want), making arrangements for the right venue, and also conducting the actual burial or cremation. We also take care of the requisite paperwork and legal requirements.

For families in Netherton, funeral expenses can be allocated according to your own status and financial position, the deceased person’s and the family’s wishes. Costs usually vary according to the kind of event you choose. The location, circumstances of death, and age are other factors. In the UK, the average cost of a traditional burial could be around £4257, while a cremation costs around £3311 according to the Royal London National Funeral Cost Index Report 2017. In general, the costs are categorised as funeral director’s fees, third-party costs (cost of cremation/burial, transportation, venue, grave-site costs, ceremony costs) and local authority fees. If you are eligible, you could apply for financial assistance to meet these costs. Some of these costs include type of coffin, transportation to the cemetery consisting of the hearse, limousines, music, professional pall-bearers if required, flowers, newspaper notices, obituary, cost of hiring the venue and minister, and special readings.

Funeral expenses in Netherton may be reduced or increased according to your specifications. To find out more about funeral expenses, contact Barringtons. You may have to pay a lump sum to the cemetery for ensuring that the grave is well-tended and kept tidy. If you want to arrange for catering after the event, this adds to costs. An urn to store the ashes may be an additional sum.

      Coronavirus Virus Update

      Thanks for visiting our website. We are still open for business during the current Coronavirus Crisis.

      We are continuing to offer our service with some limitations to our working to keep you safe and also our team members.

      At the moment we prefer to make arrangements remotely over the phone or using video conferencing. If you cannot do it this way please let us know and we will make arrangements to support you. 

      Please make an appointment before visiting our offices. If you are in isolation or shielding we can still help by using email and the internet. We may visit you to sign paperwork or to collect items and we can also complete forms on your behalf or e-sign them using the internet. 

      Our Waterloo office is open 9am - 5pm and Formby is currently open 10am - 4pm. 

      Funerals are still taking place but there is a legal limit on attendance at the service of 30 people. You may also arrange a wake or funeral reception for 15 people. There are also lots of options that we can discuss to make the service personal and involve people from a distance.

      Thanks for your understanding. Please don't wait before making arrangements. It's important that we still hold funeral services promptly.

      Thanks very much,

      David and Claire Barrington.
