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 can't recommend the Team at John Gray enough. From the first point of contact with Sandra who offered compassion and empathy as well as information on a very difficult morning, to Mike who went above and beyond to ensure we were able to say goodbye to Dad in the way we wanted to. At each and every stage of a daunting process we felt entirely i...

I can’t thank everyone at John Grays for the support in organising my mums funeral. They were very sensitive and supportive in particular Sandra and Mike who couldn’t do enough to guide us before and during the funeral. Thank you.

Mike was professional and efficient while also showing empathy, dignity, respect and warmth. His recommendation for the celebrant, Rachel Smith, was perfect. My family, cried, smiled and laug...
