Frequently asked questions

Q: What are the hidden charges?
A: We are transparent, open and honest. The price you are quoted is the price you will pay there are no hidden charges.

Q: How is it so cheap when I’ve been quoted a lot more from other funeral directors?
A: Its not cheap really but very reasonable compared to other funeral directors offering an identical comparable service. We are an independent family concern who are wholly concerned for bereaved families. Funeral debt or funeral poverty is a grave issue within our community and we are taking the steps even leaps to make it affordable for all.

Q: Will my loved one be cared for?
A: Yes. Please be assured that we are people too who are professional, experienced and devoted to our vocation. We are members of the NAFD and SAIF which assures of our competence and we follow a strict code of conduct.

Q: Do I need to pay upfront?
A: We can only provide our services on the assurance that the funeral account will be paid in full. We do not have credit facilities with our local council, doctors or clergy and therefore they all require their fees to be paid upfront. We do require all third party costs/disbursements before the funeral and a minimum of £600 towards our fees with the balance of the account paid within 7 days after the funeral.

Q: But I haven’t got that amount of money so can I pay the funeral account monthly?
A: We know that paying for a funeral can be an unexpected expense and finding the necessary funds at short notice can be very difficult and costly. That’s why we have a funeral partner who could provide an interest-free financing option – meaning you pay nothing now with the balance paid in 12 months subject to eligibility.

Q: What if I have already instructed another funeral director but I want you to look after the arrangements?

A: Not a problem. We will contact the funeral director and advise you of any costs you owe them for services you have asked them to undertake. If you deem them reasonable and wish to continue with us we will organise the collection of your loved one and bring them into our care. Any agreed charges must be paid upfront.

Q: I live in Runcorn and its easier for us to go to Walton Lea but they charge an out of borough fee… would you charge the same?

A: No. We don’t think that you should be penalised for living closer to an out of borough crematoria.

Q: Do you belong to a group like Co-op Funeralcare Dignity or a council?
A: No. We are transparent, open and honest. We are an independent family funeral service provided by Houghtons Funeral Directors Ltd Owned by Mr Houghton.

Q: Will you look after everything for us?

A: Yes we would be honoured to
