Funeral prices

At Havill Funeral Services in Sheerness, we believe that everyone should be able to say goodbye in their own way. To find out more about our standard funeral prices or any additional services, please get in touch. 

Funeral costs

All funeral directors are legally required to publish a price list for a standardised set of products and services. This is to help you think through your options and make choices, and to let you compare prices between different funeral directors (because prices can vary).

ATTENDED FUNERAL (funeral director's charges only)


This is a funeral where family and friends have a ceremony, event or service for the deceased person at the same time as they attend their burial or cremation.

Taking care of all necessary legal and administrative arrangements

Collecting and transporting the deceased from the place of death (normally within 15 miles of the funeral director's premises) into the funeral director's care 



Care of the deceased person before the funeral, in appropriate facilities. The deceased will stay at the funeral director's premises


Providing a suitable coffin - this will be made from elm veneer

Viewing of the deceased for family and friends, by appointment with the funeral director (where viewing is requested by the customer)

At a date and time you agree with the funeral director, taking the deceased direct to the agreed cemetery or crematorium (normally within 20 miles of the funeral director's premises) in a hearse or other appropriate vehicle

The funeral director can give you a full list of what they can supply. They are likely to charge for these additional products and services, so you may choose to take care of some arrangements without their involvement, or you can use a different supplier.

1. This fee (which is sometimes called the interment fee) is the charge made for digging and closing a new grave, or for reopening and closing an existing grave.

2. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, you will usually need to pay doctors’ fees as well. This is the charge for two doctors to sign the Medical Certificates for Cremation.
