Help With Funeral Costs

Published: 07.12.2018

The funeral profession has come under fire recently for having extortionate funeral costs.  However, our clients have always benefitted from the wide funeral options at an affordable price, starting with a DIY Support Service from just £500.

A recent BBC News report shows that a lady was shocked at the cost of her mother's funeral.  She had used the same parlour previously for her father's funeral but the costs had skyrocketed since the company had been taken over by Dignity, a large international funeral company.

We've always taken costs and bereaved people's ability to pay for funerals seriously because for many people it's a cost that comes out of the blue.  We know that houses are expensive and cars are expensive - but at what point are we informed about costs of funerals?  Often it's at the time of need and that can be shocking.

As a proud partner of Dying Matters Leeds, Gooding Funeral Services serves to speak openly about death and dying matters, so that people are informed before they hit a crisis.  

One of the many things we do is to publish our prices, which can be found here:  https://goodingfuneralservices...  Our clients can then make an informed decision, which can take costs into consideration, before they even meet us.

Often bereaved people only become aware of funeral prices at their time of need

For those clients who want to pay in instalments, we offer an interest free payment scheme too (conditions apply).

We can assist with a DIY funeral (starting at £500) we offer a classic private cremation for just £1425, which includes all disbursements.  This is considerably less than what our large corporate competitors charge.  You can find details on our prices page.  

These are just a few of the options we have for you.  We cater for a wide range of needs and requests.

We also think it's important to mention just how much a funeral plan can help you. Funeral plans literally looks at the type of funeral you'd like and puts aside money for that funeral.  Benefits include knowing that you will have your funeral the way you want it to go.  Your loved ones can be involved in the process too and will know what flowers you would like (if any!) the kind of burial you'd like or where you'd like to be cremated.  You would also have the peace of mind that the funeral parlour's element of the cost will be fixed until the time of need.  This in itself can save you thousands of pounds.

Funeral plans take the guesswork out of grief.

Gooding Funeral Services is a small independent, family-owned funeral parlour.  We came into this profession through grief and will always put bereaved people first.
