From our very first website in the late 80's we have always championed Funeral Directors publishing their full prices.
Throughout our site we are proud to do this as we believe we provide excellent service for a cost that the large chains are unable or unwilling to offer.
We offer choices from the simplest of services to the highest quality solid wood American-style caskets. We have a modern Hybrid-powered ceremonial fleet that is used for all our funerals. Alternative vehicles, horse-drawn Victorian Carriage Hearse and many other options are available - choice is at the heart of everything we offer.
Simplicity & Transparency
Mears Family Funerals is committed to being open and transparent about the cost of our funeral services, from our professional fees to the price of the range of coffins and caskets we offer, our limousines, our additional services and products and, where possible, third–party fees and disbursements that we will pay on your behalf such as the cremation fee, doctors’ fees, officiants’ fees etc.
We are also fully compliant with the CMA requirements in the Funeral Market Investigation Order 2021 which came into effect on 16th September 2021. Standardised Price Lists are displayed in the windows of all our branches, with copies and further information available in each branch and on our websites.
Disbursements are the fees that we have to pay out to third parties such as cemeteries, crematoria, churches, clergy, organists and doctors. We clearly identify these items in our quotations and are charged at cost.
