An Independent and Traditional Family Funeral Director
We at W. Smith and Sons believe that every funeral should be carried out with the upmost dignity and sincerity regardless of the degree of service that you require from ourselves. Whatever the cost or simplicity of the service that is needed, we will endevour to provide it with the deepest respect to the deceased and the greatest empathy to those who have lost someone very dear.
We offer three packages which comprise of various elements to make up different levels of service. These are briefly described below or alternatively please click on the link to the right to show a table of what exactly we provide for you under each package. The cost of other services we provide are listed under the link entitled "Current Price List" where we also list the different coffins or caskets that are available under the traditional funeral package.
Please be aware that in addition to the cost of our services will be the value of any disbursements, which are third party costs which we pay on your behalf. These disbursements vary greatly from funeral to funeral and therefore you will need to speak to one of our directors to obtain an idea of how much their value will be. Should you be considering a cremation at Bournemouth Crematorium with a Christian minister then the value of the disbursements will be £1113 if cremation certificates 4 and 5 are applicable.
Our traditional funeral service provides a reassuring promise to include all the essential requisites of a funeral with a ceremony at any venue within 25 miles of Bournemouth at a reasonable price, but with the flexibilty to chose a different coffin if desired. Funerals can also be arranged and carried out throughout the United Kingdom with just the additional mileage necessitating a further charge.
This simple service just provides the basic elements to acheive a respectful funeral at a local* crematorium or cemetery, but if we are involved with items that incur additional expense such as collecting the deceased outside normal working hours or preparing them for viewing then extra charges need to be made.
This service is for those who just want the deceased cremated or buried with no ceremony.
