Funeral Costs

A compassionate and quality service at a fair price.


Our Funeral Costs

Funeral Charges

Thank you for considering us when needing to arrange a funeral or planning a pre-arrangement. 

The funeral will be a unique occasion for a unique human being. Our role is not to up-sell goods, but to provide a range of services which meet your requirements and which are then carried out in a respectful manner.

When a human being dies there are some essentials to be fulfilled by law; some items you need for practical reasons; on the other hand, there are others because that is that what the deceased requested; some because they are in accordance with beliefs and then options, perhaps, just because you wish to choose them.

 Options To Suit You

Saying goodbye is never easy, but at A B Taylor we strive to offer you the best possible way to do so. Our dignified funerals, future planning and ceremonies come in a truly bespoke way.

Full Range of Funerals

Our family has always believed in providing a compassionate and quality service at a fair price.

When we arrange the funeral, we give a written estimate of our charges and the expenses we pay out.

We do not offer “packages” on our FULL RANGE OF FUNERALS. There are certain elements which are essential, but every funeral is different, and to the bereaved and to those arranging a funeral some items are considered more important than others. For example  – cost; the choice of cemetery or crematorium; type of coffin or type of vehicle. We will listen to your requests, explain the various options and charges and give a written detailed estimate. Having said that every funeral is unique there is a common thread so as a rough guideline for what many people consider a usual funeral arrangement –

  • A service at a local Crematorium (within 20 miles of our premises) including comprehensive Professional Services
  • Removal (within working hours)
  • Hearse
  • One limousine
  • Mid- range coffin

Including the necessary fees for:-

  • Crematorium
  • Minister or Celebrant
  • Doctors

Our charge would be £2800 plus necessary fees.

Simple Choice

For those who wish for a limited-service, we offer a funeral arrangement that is adequate. The care and dignity we give is equal, but this arrangement does not offer the full range of our services and may not be suitable for everyone.


  • Limited professional Services
  • Removal within working hours and within a 20-mile radius of our premises
  • Simple coffin
  • Care of the deceased for up to 14 days
  • Hearse to the Crematorium or cemetery within a 10-mile radius of our premises

The day and the time of the funeral is at our discretion although the bereaved will be consulted regarding their wishes

Our charge for this service is £2250 including the necessary fees.

The service does not include: 

  • Embalming
  • Chapel of Rest and viewing
  • A limousine

Direct Cremation

We can provide this service for a cheaper charge but in our long experience, we have found that often the family and friends of the deceased have felt deeply upset at not being able to attend a funeral and say goodbye.

There is no viewing, the date, time and place of funeral are not published, and no-one can attend.

Think carefully before deciding upon this route.

Our charge for this service is £1975 including the necessary fees.
