Funeral Costs & Packages

Funeral Packages

There can be much confusion about the cost of a funeral and many stories about costs from well-meaning people. Below is information about funeral costs to assist you in clarifying the myths.

Whether your preference is for a low cost funeral conducted with simplicity and dignity or a more elaborate funeral involving various services and arrangements, we are here to help you. We will discuss with you the type of service you require and provide you with an estimate of the total cost of the funeral in advance. You will always know what the funeral will cost with no hidden extras

We can assure you that we provide excellent service at an affordable price. 

As a proud Local,Family Owned Company, we are able to keep our overheads lower than the big businesses and multi-national companies, therefore passing these savings on to you.

At Somerville Bros. Funeral Directors, we do not offer set packages as we know families find this very impersonal and inflexible.

Put simply, we prefer to offer complete choice and flexibility which allows families to choose the options that best suit their personal and financial needs.

We suggest you peruse the information below and then contact us to discuss your individual requirements and the associated costs more specifically before you make any decisions. Our expert funeral consultants are ready to help you, to discuss the various services, options and costs that best reflect your wishes.
