Paying for the funeral

Terms of business

Trust and transparency in everything we do is central to that continued promise of high levels of service, and that’s never more essential than when we are working with customers to plan the funeral service of their choice, within an agreed budget.

We understand that planning a funeral can be an emotional and even anxious time, and that worrying about unanticipated costs and fees can cause unwanted stress at an already difficult time.

That’s why the team at Neville Funerals is committed to ensuring that all and any costs related to your funeral plans are openly discussed, fully considered and explored.

These will include any Third Party Costs that are unavoidable in many cases and beyond our control, as these are charges levied by other organisations such as local cemeteries, churches and crematorium.

Based on the choices our clients make our payment terms are listed below.
