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.

Absolutely brilliant service for my dad, Michael Ridley.Lynne & her staff were fabulous throughout the whole process and they made a bad situation a lot easier immediately from the morning my dad passed away! They took care of everything. As a family we would extremely highly recommend. All staff members were very professional but showed empathy...

After visiting a few funeral directors, I just instantly knew when we saw Lynne at the Old Durham Road office in 2016 that they were the ones to go with. She was professional, caring, considerate, supportive & compassionate. Our whole experience from car choice, coffins, vicars to how my mum looked in The Chapel of Rest etc..... was impeccable....

Outstanding service and care from the moment we made contact. Lynne's natural warmth and kindness inspired trust, a certainty that she and her team had every detail of the process covered. She was never too busy to talk; nothing was too much trouble. The funeral was exactly as we wanted. It was perfect.
