At Millar Family Funeral Directors we appreciate that each person is totally unique, so it makes perfect sense to us that each funeral we arrange and conduct should also be unique. Whether you want a simple, private service, or a more elaborate celebration, we will work with you to help you create a service that is special to you, and as unique as the life lived.
Funeral costs can vary considerably depending on whether the funeral is to be a cremation or burial. Whether you require limousines or perhaps you prefer to use your own transport. You may wish to place an intimation in the newspaper to let family and friends know the details of the funeral. You might decide to have floral tributes for your loved one, and after the funeral you may want to provide catering at a local hotel or other venue. All of these options will affect the final cost of the funeral.
We are happy to discuss all the options available to you and provide you with a written estimate at the time of the arrangement.
