A recently opened business based in Scarborough to serve the communities of Scarborough and the wider Yorkshire Coast Area.
The business is owned and operated by Kevin and his wife, Jayne. Kevin, is a qualified Funeral Director and Funeral Manager, has nearly twenty years experience in funerals working for mainly large corporate businesses.
Until recently Kevin was the Area Development Manager working for a national Corporate company covering several branches in Leeds and Yorkshire region. He wanted to offer a unique personal service from an Independent family funeral business with affordable and simplified funeral pricing offering easy to understand choices for clients so he decided to start his own business.
Kevin says "I feel there is a lot of confusion around what the actual cost of a funeral is so I decided to offer 'all inclusive' packages with a set price" This includes the Funeral Directors services, coffin, hearse and ALL disbursements. This means the client knows exactly what the overall costs are at the outset and are not shocked when suddenly extra fees are added for disbursements or 3rd party costs. This gives clearer transparency to clients when making the decision which Funeral Directors services they choose to use.
Given ever increasing funeral costs it makes sense to plan ahead and many people are now realising the benefit of having a pre paid funeral plan. Not only does this offer peace of mind on a financial level but for the family left dealing with bereavement you can leave your personal instructions on what type of funeral you want. This can include Religious services, Hymns, Music etc and takes pressure and worry off your loved ones at the time of bereavement.
We offer Pre Paid Funeral Plans through 'Safe Hands' and will be happy to explain them to you further, either in our office, or at your home. If you have an existing pre paid plan it may be you want to nominate us as your preferred Funeral Directors for future. if you require any help please contact us. Our plans can be paid by instalments and are one of the most competitively priced plans on the market. Most people ask "where does the money go to?".All monies for funeral plans are normally held by a trust fund managed by companies separate to the Funeral Director and guarantee to pay the costs of your funeral to the chosen Funeral Director when the need arises.
Kevin, and Jayne, are both brass musicians and are often called upon to play Last Post for Military funerals or civic events. Both of us play in a local Brass Band, Simply Brass in Scarborough and Kevin plays Soprano Cornet for York Railway Institute Band and is Musical Director of Golden Rail Band, York.
If you require help on music suitable for a service then we are ideally experienced to be able to offer good advice on this matter also.
We offer a 'Direct Cremation' service, two unique funeral packages ( 'Signature' and 'Cardinal' packages) which are based on a cremation service and also a 'Bespoke' service tailored to a clients specific requirements. For example Wicker, Willow, Bamboo or Solid Wood Coffin or specialised hearses etc. All our funeral packages include Funeral Directors fees AND disbursement costs for Cremation in Scarborough. This means the price you see is what you pay and there will be no additional charges other than any items requested such as flowers, Obituary notices or Service Sheets.
If burial is required then the cremation costs from the package price will be offset against the burial fees.
As most funeral companies do we ask for an Advanced Payment' to cover what we pay on your behalf before the funeral is confirmed. We are able to offer help and advice regards funding available to clients to help with funeral expenses and how to access them.
We will be happy to discuss your requirements for memorial masonry and headstones and will, through a Memorial Mason, offer this facility to clients.
it was a carefully considered decision to go ahead and open the business in light of the fact we knew a large company was opening in the area also. However Kevin says "there is now a broader spectrum of choice for the people of Scarborough to use large businesses or a more personal Independent business" What clients can expect from us is personal attention from myself and family from the outset through to conducting the funeral on the day.
The pictures hanging in our reception are personal photographs taken locally by Kevin around Scarborough and the music provided in the Chapels and Rest rooms are Kevin preforming solo pieces or with various brass bands. It doesn't get more personal than that!

We have volunteered to be a local 'Drop Off Point' for anyone wishing to donate tin foods stuff or non perishable goods for The Rainbow Centre Scarborough. This is a very worthy cause based at Parish House offering food and shelter to those who need it most. We are pleased to be able to assist with this.
Anyone can drop off their donation items to our Office and Kevin will deliver them direct to the Rainbow Centre.

Kevin and the team provided a superb service from start to finish. They were caring, understanding and at all times professional - yet approachable at any time. Nothing was too much bother and we were able to give my Father the funeral send-off that he would have wanted! Thank you for all the effort and hard work Kevin and I have no hesitation in recommending your services

If you or any family member want any information about funeral plans then feel free to call in and see us to discuss or ask information about the benefits and advantages of having a plan. Not only do you save, by paying the funeral cost at todays prices, it means your family or executors can be confident you get the funeral you desired be it Cremation or Burial and as simple or elaborate as you want. We recommend and endorse 'Safe Hands' funeral plans which are probably the most cost effective plans available. Please watch the video footage on our site for more information. If you require a home visit to discuss plans we are happy to oblige with that too.
We are pleased to be a selected Funeral Director working in conjunction with the Veterans Bereavement Support Services
