We believe that it is your choice what you have at a funeral.

Whatever you decide you can be certain that our services will always be provided in a dignified and respectful manner.

TRADITIONAL FUNERAL: A traditional funeral is always tailored to your exact needs and will cost from £2850. Variables include; which vehicles are required, where the funeral will take place, coffin selection, where the person who has died currently rests and whether the deceased is to be seen in our chapel of rest before the funeral. We have a price match guarantee; our family offers the best funeral experience and the best value, guaranteed. Please click the traditional funeral icon below for more information.
The above charges are accurate, but some things you might choose do cost more; for example, additional limousines or alternative hearses, floral tributes, obituary notices, transferring the deceased into our care out of normal business hours, (evenings, at night or weekends.) We make an additional charge for a funeral that takes place at two venues because they take longer on the day. We do also offer a wide range of alternative modern and traditional caskets and coffins, embalming/temporary preservation and dressing of the deceased in their own clothes. We regularly conduct funerals in other parts of Britain, and are acknowledged worldwide repatriation specialists.
Our branch offices have a private space or Chapel of Rest, where you may come and visit the person who has died in their coffin. These areas are peaceful and always have fresh flowers.
We genuinely appreciate your choosing us, and will do our best to exceed your expectations. We are proud that so many people recommend our family business, and as a family, we try to keep our charges among the lowest locally too. If you need to economise, or are seeking help towards the funeral cost, talk to us. Whatever your question, our help and advice costs nothing and places you under no obligation to Holmes & Family Funeral Directors.
