The rising cost of Funerals
It’s not the most cheerful subject. However, it is something we will all need to consider at some point in our lives, especially as the overall cost of dying in Northern Ireland has increased by a staggering 57% since 2007. This is not surprising when the average cost of a funeral has increased by more than 120% since 2004.
In 2018 the cost of a basic funeral in Northern Ireland increased by over 8%, bringing the price up to £3,231. This figure accounts for funeral director fees, the cremation or burial, as well as minister fees. Additional costs include the memorial, flowers, catering, order sheets in and extra limousine hire to mention a few. These elements can make up to almost 25% of the overall cost of passing and are usually paid for by loved ones.

Independent Funeral Directors
Part of the community
What's in a name?
So why is an Independent Funeral Director a good option:
“The focus is on meeting the needs of our friends and neighbours. We are not distracted or bound by corporate rules handed down from head office. We are flexible, and responsive to your needs”.
“Local independent funeral directors are part of a neighbourhood” states David Capper. “We live here and work here, we are not just a business in the area, we are part of a community”
Long-term commitment is at the heart of our ethos, just like the generations before us who served local people, we seek to build a relationship built on trust, so that you will return to us in the future.
Whenever possible, we support local charities and community organizations and make every effort to be involved in our community and to create the kind of personal relationship because we understand the needs of the community, we can best provide special services to local families.
