The Cemetry Burial Service
Fully Inclusive of All Necessary Charges
We at Paul Shoobridge Funeral Services pride ourselves on our integrity and our honest and transparent approach to pricing.
Due to the range of choices available, determining the overall cost of a funeral can be difficult. Many funeral providers indicate a cost with the term, "PLUS disbursements."

Disbursements are monies paid by the funeral director to third parties on behalf of the customer. These include, where applicable, payments to doctors, ministers, funeral celebrants, cemeteries and crematoria for example.

Paul Shoobridge Funeral Services have designed five complete, fully inclusive funeral service packages incorporating the necessary items and their associated costs in order to undertake a complete funeral.
Personalising the Funeral Service:
Additional proceedings either before or after the funeral such as, a service in church, funeral notices placed in local or national newspapers, obituaries, floral tributes, printed 'Orders of Service,' or an alternative coffin selection are some of the options you may wish to consider (may incur extra charges).
Included in Every Funeral Service:
Home visits for discussing funeral arrangements, if required;
Sanitization of the deceased and preparation for Chapel of Rest visits;
Provision of a suitable garment or gown if personal clothing is not provided;
Facilitating Chapel of Rest visits during office hours;
Option to compile and place funeral notices such as obituaries, acknowledgements and attendance 'Thanks,' in local and national newspapers;
Liaising with florists and arranging family floral tributes;
Administration of all charity donations in lieu of flowers;
Additional items, not included, that you may wish to consider are, the provision of:
  • Limousines for the transportation of the immediate family and friends
  • Printed Orders of Service including family photograph insertions
  • Printed Canvasses - photo based depiction for memory or keepsake purposes
  • Catering at a chosen venue
Cemeteries in England and Wales have different local and national rules. Some variables exist regarding allowable 'memorial' monuments within these cemeteries and some cemeteries have designated areas for different religions or denominations – your funeral director will advise you accordingly. In addition, the placement of grave memorials is not usually allowed for six months although the memorial can be ordered in readiness. Shoobridge Funeral Services will be happy to help you regarding all local memorial matters.
