Arranging a funeral can be a trying experience for relatives and friends of the deceased. All the more so when it comes to making decisions about the funeral details themselves, and the costs involved.
These relate to the services and materials provided by Funeral Directors themselves and include for example, costs of the coffin, professional fees, administrative fee, hearse, limousine, habit/shroud, and embalming.
These are payments to third parties (e.g. grave purchase, grave opening, cremation charges, churches, newspaper notices, flowers, organist, soloist, catering) which are incurred as part of the agreed funeral arrangements and which the Funeral Director pays on behalf of the client family.
