We are proud to announce Your Choice Funerals as our very first Fair Funerals funeral director of the month.
This is part of our push in 2017 to recognise and showcase the amazing work already being done by parts of the funeral industry. Your Choice Funerals opened in 2015, and has put prices on their website to offer cost transparency to all of their customers. With the average price of a funeral now standing at an all-time high of almost £4000, it's more important than ever that people have clear, accessible information.
Their website is particularly clear and thorough with regards to their pricing, with several options and their exact prices listed. What makes Your Choice Funerals stand out is that they list the full cost the funeral, and let you know there will be no hidden costs at the end as all third-party costs are already included. This is a great step for customers in accessing vital price information with ease, making shopping around that much easier.
This is in response to a worrisome trend of many other funeral directors, who through leaving out key, hidden costs, leave customers in unexpected debt at a time of bereavement. At a time when 1 in 7 of us would struggle hugely with footing the bill, it's important that funeral directors take the lead of Your Choice Funerals and clearly list their prices and third-party costs so there are no nasty surprises.
Chris Sample of Your Choice Funerals says:
Being chosen as funeral director of the month gives us a great sense of achievement, knowing that we have been recognised for helping to make funerals more affordable and straightforward for the public.
