Unless the deceased has arranged a pre-paid funeral or had life or funeral insurance, the immediate family is responsible for the cost of the funeral.
The cost of a funeral depends on the type of service, coffin or casket, burial or cremation fees, plot, headstone or memorial plaque.
No. If the death has not been registered by the hospital or nursing home, Guilfoyle Funerals will arrange for the death to be registered with the proper authorities.
Cremation is usually the cheaper option because there is no requirement to purchase a burial plot.
A graveside service takes place in the cemetery, rather than in a church or chapel. If you would like to arrange a graveside service, please contact us.
