CMA Price List
Over the years we have seen the cost of funerals continue to rise, far more than the cost of living. As an independent funeral director we have worked hard to ensure that our funeral prices remain fair so that the funeral services we provide remain competitive.
We are confident in our charges and we have always been transparent about them too. We also believe that we charge for a professional service. We do not, nor have ever, hidden our fees nor advertised fees that are not correct nor complete.
Following a nationwide investigation by the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) a number of issues across the funeral industry were highlighted, culminating in the Funerals Market Investigation Order 2021.
The Order has made it a legal requirement for ALL funeral directors to publish a “Standardised Price List” as well as an Additional Options Price List both on their websites and in prominate positions within their premises by 16th September 2021. This has been ordered in an effort to make it easier for the bereaved to compare “like for like” funeral options from funeral directors – both small and large companies – and assist them in their choices.
At Wallace Stuart we realise that managing funeral costs can seem daunting. We make sure everything is as transparant as possible for our clients. We give you a detailed breakdown of the costs involved and explain the various funeral options we provide. We never upsell our products nor make our families feel that a more affordable funeral seems second best.
In addition to the cost of your chosen funeral directors charges there will be other fees called “disbursements”. These are third party charges that the funeral director will pay on your behalf. The exception to this is our Direct Cremation and Burial Services which includes essential third party charges and these we have paid prior to the funeral service.
Our premises are located at 73 Fore Street, North Petherton, Somerset TA6 6PZ
We are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Lel or Sarah will always be your first point of contact and will endeavour to support your family and care for your loved one at all times.
