Comparing Funerals Costs

No two funerals are the same. And no two funeral directors are the same either.
At Armours Funeral Service, our prices include many of the funeral elements that other providers add on as extras. To help you compare like-for-like, here’s our guide to pricing.

Add-ons, extras or included as standard?

Armours Funeral Service doesn’t charge extra for:

  • Coming to your home to make arrangements
  • Out of hours attendance
  • Collecting clothing locally
  • Family viewing
  • Saturday morning funerals
  • Additional staff
  • Delivery of ashes locally
  • Online obituary

Other factors to consider:

  • Experience of staff
  • Quality of reputation
  • Standard of facilities
  • Quality of fleet
  • Professional accreditation

We’re here to help you when you need us the most. 
Feel free to visit us in branch to meet our team, see the premises and ask any question you want.
