  • At the start of 2020 the CMA said they were going to looking into funeral pricing amongst other things. 

  • As a result every funeral director needs to have the CMA standardised price list available on-line.

  • the regulations, at the bottom of this page you can access our standardised pricelist as prescribed by the CMA.

  • As part of the CMA regulations we have to provide information on cemeteries and crematoria
