Funeral Pricing, Transparency & Personalisation

At Ian J. Arthur & Sons, we believe that the funeral industry should be much more transparent, particularly with regards to prices. Unfortunately for many years there has been a shroud of secrecy around prices meaning that some funeral directors have taken advantage of grieving families. We want to break that mould. Therefore on this page we publish the standard pricing for four different common types of funerals.

However, we also understand that there is an increasing desire by families for the farewell of the person they love to be a personalised, well crafted service which is specific and uniquely suited to the person who has passed away. Therefore we encourage you to contact us to discuss the requirements of your family. It would be our privilege to help you design a wonderful farewell for your loved one.
