Miles & Daughters

Funeral Costs Estimator

The cost of a funeral is largely dictated by the elements that are included within the funeral. These can vary greatly, depending, for example, on the type of coffin chosen, the number of following limousines and the crematorium or cemetery of your choice.

The funeral account will comprise two sets of charges. Firstly, there will be those charges made by Miles & Daughters for our professional fees and secondly, those charges made by third parties (known as disbursements) which we usually pay on your behalf.

Our professional fees begin with our 'Basic Simple' funeral. This funeral, created in accordance with the National Association of Funeral Directors code of practice, includes all of the necessary requirements for a simple funeral , including a plain coffin, and costs £1650.00. The simple funeral does not include the use of our chapel or our limousine, although these elements may be added. Basic simple funerals must also be conducted at a time to suit our diary.

Our traditional funerals include all the usual refinements associated with a high quality funeral. These include a hearse and one limousine and use of our chapel at any time. A choice of vehicles from our fleet is also allowed for within our traditional funerals, including the use of our vintage fleet. Traditional funerals are conducted, whenever possible, on a date and time to suit our clients. The cost of such a funeral, inclusive of collection of the deceased and making arrangements is £1960.00 plus the cost of the coffin.

All funerals conducted by Miles & Daughters are carried out to the highest of standards, with great respect being shown at all times, regardless of the cost of the funeral.

Churchyard burials are usually strictly reserved for those who live within parish boundaries. Cemeteries will also usually charge extra for graves of those deceased who did not reside in their catchment areas (noted as 'non-res' in our estimator). Residents of a cemetery catchment area will usually have an automatic right of burial. The cemetery fee shown refers to the purchase of a single burial plot dug to a standard depth. Fees shown also include grave digging charges and the removal of excess soil where required. Plots to accommodate multiple burials may incur additional charges. Please contact us for details.
