Comparing funeral costs

No two funerals are the same.

And no two funeral directors are the same either.
At William Purves, our prices include many of the funeral elements that other providers add on as extras.
To help you compare like-for-like, here’s our guide to pricing.

Add-ons, extras or included as standard?

William Purves does not charge extra for:

  • Coming to your home to make arrangements
  • Out of hours attendance
  • Collecting clothing locally
  • Family viewing
  • Saturday morning funerals
  • Additional staff
  • Delivery of ashes locally
  • Online obituary
  • Access to specialist bereavement support

Other factors to consider:

  • Experience of staff
  • Quality of reputation
  • Standard of facilities
  • Quality of fleet
  • Professional accreditation

We’re here to help you when you need us the most.
Feel free to visit us in branch to meet our teams, see the premises and ask any question you want.

Council cemetery and crematoria fees vary so to get an accurate price, choose one of the regions below.

Funerals reflect a life lived and the personality of the deceased. There is no limit to how you can personalise a send-off whether that’s in the ceremony, use of materials or style of event. We encourage families to lean on our extensive experience and explore the possibilities – it costs nothing to have a conversation.

But to get it right? Well that’s priceless.
