CMA Standardised Price List

Sean Crilley Funeral Directors of Carlisle

Over the years we have seen the cost of funerals continue to rise, far more than the cost of living. As an independent family funeral director we have worked hard to ensure that our funeral prices remain fair so that the funeral services we offer are competitive.

We are confident in our charges and are transparent about them too. We also believe that we charge for a professional service. The most cost effective option isn’t always best. Our belief is; ‘Professional fees for a professional, high quality service’.  

Following an investigation by the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) a number of issues across the funeral industry were highlighted, culminating in the Funerals Market Investigation Order 2021.

The Order has made it a legal requirement for ALL funeral directors to publish a 'Standardised Price List' as well as an Additional Options Price List both on their websites and in prominent positions within their premises by 16th September 2021.  This has been ordered in an effort to make it easier for the bereaved to compare 'like for like' funeral options from funeral directors - both small and large companies and assist them in their choices.

At Sean Crilley Funeral Directors, we realise that managing funeral costs can seem daunting. We make sure everything is as transparent as possible for our clients. We will give you a detailed break down of the costs involved and explain the various funeral options we provide. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss our prepaid options, please get in touch. We serve families across Carlisle, North Cumbria and surrounding areas. 

In addition to the cost of your chosen funeral directors charges there will be other fees called ‘Disbursements’. These are third party charges that the Funeral Director will pay on your behalf.  The exception to this is our Direct Cremation and Burial Services which includes the essential third party charges and requires payment in full prior to the funeral service.

We have our main Funeral Home and office on Brook Street in Carlisle as well as our beautiful and very private, Lismore Chapel also in Carlisle.

We are here for you 24 hours, every day of the year.
