Funeral Prices

We are the only funeral director in Barnsley to offer a price guarantee. Our prices are the lowest locally yet our service is never compromised and our clients will always get 100% of our care and attention. If you have any questions then please contact us at any time for a no obligation chat.

There are around 14 funeral director branches in our Borough! Several of these are either associated with or are part of corporate firms whilst some are part of the country’s largest corporates. The big companies often leave the family name over the door so you never realise you are dealing with a large corporate company. Then there are small family run Independent funeral directors with either 1 or 2 branches that cover the area, and cover it well.

 

When arranging a funeral, the costs are divided into two parts – funeral directors’ fees and disbursements, which are third party costs which we pay on your behalf. You’ll see the costs of our local Crematoria here, but please call us to get a quote for other locations.

We operate a completely transparent pricing policy of one fixed price for our services, whether for a burial or cremation. Of course any third party costs or additional items selected by you are individually priced.

 

We strongly suggest you compare our price against other funeral directors in Barnsley. Barnsley Metropolitan Funerals offer a price guarantee so you always have the peace of mind you really need when arranging a funeral.

 

Our prices are clearly displayed below. If you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time as we’re always here to help.
