0% Finance Available on Funeral Packages up to a value of £3,000.00

If you have selected one of our Funeral Packages, or created a bespoke package that comes to less than £3,000, we can now offer 0% finance over a period of six or ten months. Please speak to one of our arrangers about this and we will be happy to help.

Financial Help

It is possible to get help with the expense of a funeral if you are on low income and find it difficult to cover the expenses. This help is provided by the Department of Work and Pensions and is a direct payment towards funeral costs. A link to their “how to claim” page and to the claim form SF200 is attached below. We can help you with this whole process, from start to finish, and once you have applied for support the Department for Work and Pensions will liaise with us as well as yourselves in order to complete your application as smoothly as possible.

Additional Benefits

There are further benefits that are available to some individuals in relation to a bereavement. These are;

  • Bereavement Allowance
  • Widowed Parents Allowance
  • Bereavement Payment

Your Funeral Director will be able to give you further information about these.

Direct Cremation Service

If you are struggling with Funeral costs and looking for a simple and inexpensive solution please take a look at our Direct Cremation Service. A Direct Cremation incorporates all of our professional services and support including the use of a Hearse for transport to the crematorium with a Funeral Director and bearers. However, the main difference from a traditional cremation is that there is no public service or family presence at the crematorium on the day of committal.

If you wish we will be happy to arrange a service with a Funeral Celebrant at a location and time of your choice to mark the occasion. Even with a private service the cost of a Direct Cremation is still nearly £1,000 lower than a traditional cremation. By arranging a private committal in this way we are able to help families who are struggling with ever rising funeral costs.

Please go to our pricing page to see prices for Direct Cremations.

Funeral Planning

Another useful approach when considering funeral costs is to use a pre-paid funeral plan. We offer this service through Golden Charter and it is an easy way to plan and pay for funeral costs. It is also a caring way to protect your loved ones from having to deal with financial issues at a difficult time of loss.

One huge benefit of Funeral Plans is that you fix the cost of the funeral at today’s prices. Almost all market analysis indicates that funeral costs will double in the next ten years, making the cost of an average funeral between £8,000 and £10,000. But if you buy a plan today you will be locking your Funeral Director’s costs at today’s prices…for good.

Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,

​My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.​

I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.

Steve and Brenda Bester - December 2017

I really can’t thank the team at Penrose enough for the beautiful funeral they managed for my dear husband Fred. Especially Nathan for helping us plan the day with such care and dignity.

I met Nathan’s dad Jeremy for the first time when he arrived with the cortege to collect us from home. Immediately I felt totally at ease with this charming charismatic gentleman leading the service perfectly from begining to end.

Thank you so much

from Georgie
