Planning A Funeral Service

Suzuki Hayabusa

Here at Johnson & Daltrey Funeral service, we can guide you through the funeral arrangements at any one of our branches, in our private and homely arrangement rooms. Every branch contains a full range of literature and products on display, to help you decide on the best tribute for your loved ones. Alternatively, our funeral directors are always more than happy to visit you in the familiar surroundings of your own home to make arrangements.

We make every effort we can to meet the personal requirements of every one of our clients, and will always aim to make appointments which are convenient to you.

Pricing and Charges

Whilst arranging the funeral, we will advise you on the various costs and charges that will be incurred. You will receive a full written quotation from us for your approval, to ensure you are completely happy with the services we are offering, before you commit to using them. The funeral account is separated into two parts, disbursement fees, and our charges.

Disbursement fees are third party costs involved surrounding the funeral, which we pay on your behalf. These can include, but are not exclusive to; doctors fees, crematorium fees, minister charges, and parochial fees, all where appropriate. Your quotation will detail the cost of these fees, however, as we have no control over them, they can sometimes be subject to slight variations.

Our standard charges include:

  • Attending to the arrangements surrounding the funeral service
  • Completion of all necessary paperwork
  • Provision of all necessary staff
  • Liaising and communicating with all parties involved, including the hospital and crematorium
  • Collection of the deceased from a hospital, nursing home or residential address and conveyance to our premises
  • Care of the deceased
  • The provision of our motor hearse
  • Conducting of the funeral service
  • 24 hour advice and support
  • A coffin of your choosing

We can also provide many optional extras:

As standard, we provide a traditional black funeral fleet, consisting of a purpose built motor hearse and any number of limousines that you may require (limousines are charged separately, per car) Limousines will be chauffer driven on the day, and allow for six mourners per car. We will come to the address of your choice to collect persons travelling in the limousine, and will then take you back to your desired location after the funeral service.

However, we believe that everyone should be given a variety of choice in how they would like to take their final journey, so we offer a range of bespoke funeral transport to our clients, allowing family members to choose a fitting tribute to their loved ones. We will also make every effort to take alternative routes on the day of the funeral, if there is a particular location close to the family’s heart they would like to pass through.

Other extras that can be included with the funeral arrangements can include:

  • Order of service booklets – designed in house to your personal specification
  • Floral tributes
  • Newspaper Notice
  • Cremation jewellery, urns and caskets

The options available to families are almost limitless, allowing for a truly memorable tribute. Everything from bagpipers to dove releases are attainable. So if you have any special requests, obscure as they may seem, don’t be afraid to discuss them with your funeral director.
