Attended Funeral

The aim of the Competition and Markets Authority Funeral Markets Order 2021 is to make it easier for customers to access the prices of funeral directors and crematorium operators and to help increase customers’ awareness of the total cost of the services they may require.

These provisions are also intended to help customers to  compare the prices and services of different funeral directors and crematorium operators so that they can assess what best suits their needs and budget.

The criteria for the Attended Funeral:

  • Taking care of all necessary legal and administrative arrangements.
  • Collecting and transporting the deceased person from the place of death (normally within 15 miles of the funeral director’s premises) into the funeral director’s care.
  • Care of the deceased person before the funeral in appropriate facilities.
  • Providing a suitable coffin.
  • Viewing of the deceased person for family and friends, by appointment with the Funeral Director.
  • Provision of a hearse or other appropriate vehicle to take the deceased person direct to the agreed cemetery or crematorium (normally within 20 miles of the funeral director’s premises) at a date and time agreed between the customer and funeral director.

We were so impressed by the caring and thoughtful service that we received. We were guided gently through the whole process, getting advice and support while feeling free to choose exactly what we wanted. The whole process was seamless. I can't recommend James & Thomas and Anita highly enough.

I felt immensely lucky that Anita looked after my mum after she passed. Her team who arrived when my mother died were respectful and kind. Anita was always gentle, supportive and efficient, making an awful time bearable with the right words and suggestions at the right moments. She lead us gently through the choices we had, and was equally helpf...
