Funeral Costs in Portsmouth

How much is a funeral nowadays

Funeral costs are calculated based on ones individual requirements. No two funerals are the same, as such; costs will always vary depending upon what you want. However, in general, costs are made up in three distinctive parts:

Professional Funeral Charges

Professional Funeral ChargesProfessional funeral charges are the CORE CHARGES of the Searson Family Funeral Services. Professional Charges or a Professional Fee is a fixed fee that generally covers the full arranagement of a funeral.

It will include personal supervision of all the arrangements before, during and after the funeral service. Every funeral is subject also to Third Party Charges - charges beyond our control.

PROFESSIONAL CHARGES

Additional Funeral Charges

Additional Funeral ChargesAdditional Funeral Charges are those which, may not be essential for the funeral, but are items or services required to meet your individual requirements. You do not have to buy anything extra unless you specifically want to. However. most families always wish to add that something special - and we will never push extras on any family.

ADDITIONAL CHARGES

Third Party Funeral Charges

Third Party Funeral ChargesThird Party Charges are those fees which are required to be paid to third parties: Crematorium, Cemetery, Minister etc. These costs are the same, regardless of which Funeral Director you nominate to carry out the funeral. Most of these charges are payable in advance of the funeral, and our family will discuss the provision for payment with you during the arrangement meeting. Third Party Charges are out of our control, and therefore we can only advise you what these will be.

THIRD PARTY CHARGES

Value for your money funerals

REMEMBER, the total cost of a funeral should be measured against what you actually get for your money. Value is essential and not all funeral directors reveal the total cost when giving an estimate. Neither do all funeral directors provide the same level of service. In addition, one Funeral Director may quote a lower price from another, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are getting best value. ALL our charges are carefully calculated to ensure that a comprehensive service is provided which also reflects good value. The cost of a funeral will be dependent upon your individual requirements. However, our charges are listed here to give you a clear indication of what you can expect from our family and, just as important, the costs likely to be incurred.
