We are constantly looking for ways to improve the service we offer to the community, and to make the ‘funeral experience’ more rewarding for everyone involved. We also recognise that funerals are expensive, and we are making a special effort to keep the costs involved as low as possible.
For small funeral gatherings of up to 30 people, our facilities at Gate Lodge enable all the above criteria to be filled, at the same time as removing the time restraints placed on you by holding a funeral at a crematorium chapel. Holding a funeral in the centre of St Neots means less travelling too.
For those who wish to keep costs down, keep the funeral simple, or both, we offer a funeral for £2,850.00 inclusive of external fees. This charge includes our professional fee, a simple, standard-sized coffin, a notice on our website to inform friends and family of the arrangements, and the use of Gate Lodge for the funeral ceremony. For cremation, Cambridge Crematorium’s band 1 fee (early morning or late afternoon), doctors’ fees and a celebrant’s fees are included. For burial, a single grave in St Neots Cemetery (St Neots residents only), purchase of the burial rights and a celebrant’s fees are included.
You are, of course, able to choose from a range of higher specification or eco-friendly coffins. You can also add any of our bespoke elements such as limousines, flowers, newspaper notices, catering and printed service sheets, but we guarantee not to push these, and to provide the service as above with all dignity. All we ask is that the £2,850.00 is paid before the funeral is confirmed. If it is paid by debit card or BACS transfer, we allow a discount of £75.00 making the cost £2,775.00.
