Fair Funeral Pricing

As part of the Quaker Social Action Charity’s Fair Funeral Pledge and the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) Code of Practice, Lee Fletcher Funeral Services have agreed to be transparent and open about our most affordable options.

We understand that everyone’s circumstances and requirements are different.  
We recognise that funerals can be expensive and many people struggle with the cost.
 As such, we have designed two funeral service packages: one for those who require no funeral service at all; and a second for those who require a basic, simple funeral service, both are of an affordable price, and to help people to find funerals that are within their means.

Whilst the two packages offer the simplest type of services we can provide, please be assured that there is no difference in the level of dignity and care we will show the deceased throughout the whole proceedings.

These prices are correct until March 31st 2017

Should you have any questions, or require a full quotation for alternative services, please do not hesitate to contact us.

However, if you stipulate which crematorium you would prefer to hold the service, there may be an additional charge to cover the cost of the Crematorium fees.
