Over the years we have seen the cost of funerals continue to rise, far more than the cost of living. As an independent funeral director, we and other independent funeral directors have worked hard to ensure that funeral prices remain fair so that the funeral services we offer are not overpriced.
Following an investigation by the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) a number of issues across the funeral industry were highlighted, culminating in the Funerals Market Investigation Order 2021.
The Order has made it a legal requirement for ALL funeral directors to publish a ‘Standardised Price List’ as well as an Additional Options Price List both on their websites and in prominent positions within their premises by 16th September 2021. This has been ordered in an effort to make it easier for the bereaved to compare ‘like for like’ funeral options from funeral directors – both small and large companies and assist them in their choices.
At Phillip Tom and Sons, we realise that managing funeral costs can seem daunting. We make sure everything is as transparent as possible for our clients. We will give you a detailed break down of the costs involved and explain the various funeral options we provide. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss our prepaid options, please get in touch. We serve families all over South East Wales.
As all funerals are different, and needs vary, we recommend that you call us on 01633 615005 to talk through all of the options, so that we can give an accurate no-obligation quotation.
In addition to the cost of your chosen funeral directors charges will be other fees called ‘Disbursements’, which are third party charges that we pay on your behalf.
Our family are here to support your family every step of the way.
