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.

I cannot praise James and Thomas Funeral Director, and especially Liz, highly enough after the help and guidance I received from then recently. I am hard pushed to think of anyone better at their profession. The experience I received was personal and loving, whilst relaxed and full of good advice.

I used the Cobham branch and I found them to be most caring, Their calmdemeanour helped to allay many of the worries that I had around that time and the funeral service ran smoothly from beginning to end.

If you have to go through this desperately sad process then do yourself a favour and use James & Thomas. I have never felt such kindness and support from complete strangers - who now feel like friends.
