Funeral Costs 

The cost of each individual funeral can vary considerably, depending on many factors including the type of funeral, your choice of the coffin, floral tributes and so on. Here at W&K Gerrie, we work very closely with families to tailor each individual service to meet their needs and budget. You can be sure that there are no hidden fees and at any time during the process we are happy to discuss the cost of each individual item and service as required. 

Standardised Price List

All funeral directors are legally required to publish a Price List for a standardised set of products and services. This is to help you think through your options and make choices, and to let you compare prices between different funeral directors - because prices can vary.

What if I can't cover the cost of the funeral?

With the cost of living on the rise, we understand that many families may be in the position where they are simply unable to cover the cost of a funeral for their loved one. 

To help families manage the cost of a funeral, the Scottish Government has a Funeral Support Payment Scheme which helps towards the cost of a funeral if you live in Scotland.
