Where can I get help to arrange a funeral?

Costs

Your selected Funeral Director should give you a written quotation for their costs and may require you to pay a deposit.

Charges differ between Funeral Directors and therefore it is advisable for you to get more than one quote so you are able to compare the prices.

A Partnership Funeral Service is available to anyone who has to arrange the funeral for a deceased resident of the St Helens Borough, who is going to be buried at St Helens or Newton Cemeteries or cremated at St Helens Crematorium.
