Costs & Fair Funerals Pledge
We can help you arrange everything from the very simplest to the most sophisticated of funerals.
Because funeral arrangements are entirely a matter of personal need and preference, the best way of finding out detailed costs is by discussing your wishes with your local Lincolnshire Co-op funeral director.
You can talk to us entirely without obligation and in the strictest confidence.
There are two different types of expense when it comes to organising a funeral - the funeral director’s charges (listed in the costs leaflet downloadable below) and the so-called ‘disbursements’, which are the fees paid to third parties like clergy, cemetery or crematorium and doctors.
Members’ funeral dividend
It’s never an easy time losing a loved one. At Lincolnshire Co-op, we believe it’s important for us to help our members during the difficult time of a bereavement, so we operate a funeral dividend.
Members will receive a 5% dividend which is calculated on the value of the funeral directors’ fees.
Fair Funerals Pledge
Our funeral services are committed to providing transparent prices and helping people find a funeral they can afford and to show this we’ve signed the Fair Funerals Pledge.
It means we agree to:
- Recognise funerals can be expensive and many people struggle with the cost.
- Make our most affordable funeral package visible to the public, including third party costs.
- Charge clear prices for goods and services so people know what they're buying.
- Communicate prices in initial conversations while prominently displaying full price lists.
We’re also pleased to offer a simple funeral option for £1,495, plus essential disbursements. Though this carries certain restrictions, it facilitates a dignified, respectful and more affordable funeral service, which can still be personalised to reflect the lifestyle and preference of the deceased, whilst serving the needs of the family at what is a very difficult time.
As well as our simple funeral option, our typical funeral prices sit well below the national average and just under the local average.
All our funeral directors, arrangers and managers are trained to discuss with the client their ability to meet the costs associated with the funeral they are arranging and, in cases of hardship, to provide the simple funeral option.
Contact your nearest Lincolnshire Co-op funeral home to find out more about the costs of a funeral.
