2, Laurence Jones Funeral Directors Charges

Keeping our costs down as much as possible, we believe our charges to be fair and extremely reasonable for our exceptional level of service.

As a local family run firm, we are not owned by shareholders and as such are able to tailor funeral services to Your exact requirements,

It is not our policy to add on any costs for additional extras, we and are not driven to hit sales targets and try to sell to you.

We believe that every funeral arrangement should be a personal & appropriate tribute to the loved one who has passed away.

By ringing Laurence Jones Funeral Directors you always get one of our local, personal, & experienced staff, not a big conglomorate hiding behind an old company name they bought out many years ago, and as such are assured of our best intentions at all times.
TOTAL cost for unattended private cremation enquire for more details
We pay a higher fee (NOT OUR CHARGE) to local crematoria so that the cremation takes place locally rather than charging you a little less to then send your loved one off to a crematorium somewhere miles away in another area of the country just to save a few pounds.
We believe people don't want to be treated merely as a number and if you use our local services then it's only right to stay local for the cremation.
