Fees and Costs

Fees and Costs

Our family are here, to help yours…

Considering the recent publicity looking in to funeral costings, along with the government investigation we feel that as someone arranging a funeral it should be considered more than just the cost element when choosing a funeral director to care for you, and your loved ones.

We provide;

  • New and modern decorated offices with a warm and welcoming feel.
  • A member of the Hickton family on hand and on call 24/7.
  • The latest technology to communicate with our clients and administration within our funeral homes.
  • Fully trained, qualified and dedicated staff.
  • New and modern funeral vehicles maintained to a high specification.
  • We offer expert aftercare bereavement support as part of using our services at no additional fee.
  • Exclusive partnership with Golden Charter Funeral Plans.
  • We are proud to be one of only a small handful of family owned funeral businesses located in Birmingham and Wolverhampton cities.

The fees detailed below are fees charged from us as the funeral directors. 
In addition to our fees there will also be the coffin or casket fee and the disbursements.
(Disbursements are third party fees we pay on the clients behalf)
