Funeral Costs

As the costs of funerals are rising, we as a genuine family firm,
make every effort to ensure you receive the best possible service at an affordable cost.
We have never in our history advertised our prices online, because as a rule,
we believe it goes against the ethics of our profession.

No Hidden Costs

We have nothing to hide, and would rather speak to you personally to give you a bespoke price based on what type of funeral you wish for you loved one.

We also understand the need for low budget funerals and direct cremations and we can accommodate this with much flexibility.

We will talk to you personally and openly about ‘all’ of the costs and you will be given a full written estimate, which will detail ‘everything.’ There will be no hidden extras.

We do not charge any extra for the care and preparation of your loved one, nor do we charge for any Chapel visits.

We can assist you with applications to the Department of Work and Pensions and also liaise with solicitors with regards to probate and other services.

We follow a guideline of sending the final invoice approximately 7 days after the funeral has taken place. Our terms of payment are 28 days from the date of the invoice, however if you are unable to make the payment within this time, talk to us in confidence and we will discuss all the available options.

We pride ourselves on our history, nearly 70 years worth of traditionalism, professionalism and a dependable service throughout the community.

Finally, it is W J Farrier & Son policy that we will not ask you for a deposit before the funeral. This has always been the case throughout our history (other than exceptional circumstances), and we genuinely believe that you, the family, come before any financial gain.

For information on our costs or for a full written estimate please contact us. We are available by telephone, E-mail and in person at our premises or we can visit you.

Planning Ahead...

Golden Charter Funeral Plans offer total peace of mind, allowing you to personalise your funeral exactly how you want it.

A Golden Charter pre-paid plan can relieve your family of any worries and uncertainty at what will inevitably be a distressing time.

W J Farrier & Son work extremely closely with Golden Charter, and their continued
success in supplying the various pre-paid plans have led to the Farrier family
winning awards in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015 for their excellent work.


  • “My family and I would like to thank you so much for the way in which
    the funeral of my son was carried out, nothing was too much trouble
    for you and the care and compassion shown by everyone at Farriers
    made a very sad day a lot easier for us to deal with.
    You are a remarkable family.
    Thank you once again.”

    Mrs P. from Dover
