FAQs & Advice

Not sure about something? Take a look at our FAQ section to see if we have the answer to your question, if we don't, please contact us today.

The average cost of a funeral according to the SunLife cost of dying report 2024 is £4141.00 But we believe a funeral can be as simple or as extravagant as you wish it to be for your loved one, and our prices will reflect this. We offer a wide range of affordable options such as direct cremations from only £1350 and simple funerals from £2050
Stinsons handle the logistical details, including the collection and storage of the body, and obtaining necessary medical certificates. We collaborate with the family to tailor service arrangements and assist with official documentation, such as death registration by an authorised person. A specific date and time for the cremation at the crematorium are set, and as a gesture of respect, a single rose—either white or red, chosen by you or your loved ones—is placed on the coffin.
In the event of a death, numerous people and organisations need to be informed, including:
  • Hospital and/or family doctor
  • Social services and district nurses
  • Car insurance
  • Employer or professional association
  • HM Revenue and Customs
  • Social security
  • Local council
  • Utilities (gas, electric, water, telephone, internet)
  • Credit card companies
  • Banks and building societies (accounts must be closed, and any joint accounts must be amended appropriately)
  • Investments and insurance policies (premium bonds are not transferable, which is why the Post Office issues a form that must be sent to the bonds and stocks office – for further advice, consult a financial adviser or accountant)
