Financial Considerations

When arranging a funeral at Guilfoyle Funerals, we manage payments on behalf of the family. Funeral costs can be broken down into the funeral director’s fee, cost of the coffin or casket, and sundry disbursements.

Funeral Director's Professional Fee

The work of a funeral director involves many hours of careful planning and co-ordination to ensure the service runs smoothly and as planned. This service fee covers the use of our specialised facilities, vehicles and work performed by our staff.

Coffin, Casket Or Urn

The price of a coffin or urn can vary considerably depending on the type of material it is made of, the quality of the workmanship and type of furnishings used.
