Funeral Directors Costs
The cost of the selected coffin or casket will be one of the main costs. When we give you the price of the coffin all the following are automatically included in the price. The price of the coffin, the “Cross” grave marker, Cover for coffin, the use of hearse, family car and private ambulance including removals to and from anywhere in Donegal, embalming and preparation of the body. Also included is the use of all the services and equipment of the funeral undertakers as well as the time and service of the funeral directors. This price is normally what you pay the Funeral Director for all their services. There may be some additions depending on where the death has taken place, and/or the use of The Chapel of Rest in Letterkenny. However families usually like to bring their loved ones home privately to have some family time before the wake begins.
Disbursements cover other services paid for by the Funeral Director on your behalf. This covers flowers, Music, Grave attendants; alter attendants, Radio and/or Newspapers notice etc., catering and goods ordered for the wake house. We do not take a contribution for the priest; this can be done between yourself and the priest.
We can give an accurate estimate cost for any of the above services.
We can give advice regarding social protection payments and any other financial queries that you may have in connection with the funeral costs
