Hoskins Funerals Direct is an Independent Funeral Service and we believe that we can offer a funeral to fit any budget and circumstance whether it is simple or bespoke.
We keep our overheads manageable so that we can share the benefits of this with you, and during our numerous combined years in the industry we are continually sourcing and selecting suppliers that offer quality as well as value for money so that we can offer you the same service.
When we offer an affordable Funeral it certainly does not mean a compromise in the quality of service that we provide for you and your loved one, before, during and after the service. You will receive the best of Care at all times.
We will be transparent, honest and fair with you about pricing and will not try to sell you a funeral that is not fitting for your loved one or which is outside of your budget, so, when we give you an Estimate of Costs it will not include FROM £xxx.xx The price that we will give you is the actual cost based on current prices from third party suppliers.
We pride ourselves in guiding you through the process of selecting what YOU feel is right and help YOU make the decisions that fit YOUR needs.
