Why we are different

No family should be faced with debt following a bereavement.  We have helped many families who have been turned away by some of the National Companies who people believe should be able to help them.

We do not charge a deposit

Our fees are among the lowest in Torbay

We will help you apply for the Funeral Expenses Payment

We offer a range of discounts

We do not charge any fees for under 18's funerals

We are the only signatory of the Fair Funeral Pledge 2021 in Torbay

WE ARE A PROUD SIGNATORY OF THE

2021 FAIR FUNERALS CAMPAIGN

 

For the second year we have been successfully assessed by the Fair Funerals Campaign to proudly become a signatory for the campaign in 2021.

As a cause that is very close to our heart, we display their logo with pride knowing that we are offering our families clear fair pricing for our services. 

 

The pledge is an opportunity for funeral directors to demonstrate that they are fair and are dedicated to meeting the increasing demand for price transparency within the funeral industry.

By signing the pledge, we become part of a community of funeral directors who agree to put transparency and honesty at the centre of their work, and who aspire to be the change we all want to see within the funeral industry.

Every family deserves a first class service at an affordable cost

We know every family is different and finding the money to pay for a funeral can be difficult.

This is one of our core beliefs.  We are a local family business and we will help our community in any way we can.

 

You can always call us or pop in for a chat in confidence and between us we will find a way forward.

Payment Options

No matter what the situation we will do everything we can to help. 

No family should have to go into debt to pay for a funeral service.  Rather than take out a funeral payment loan please talk to us and see what we can do.

We are happy to accept payment from the solicitor dealing with your loved one's estate or a payment from a bank account.

For options available to you. Call us on
