Our Prices


As we have all noticed, the cost of a funeral is always rising. The average cost of a funeral in Stockport last year was around £4,000. We believe our prices here are much more realistic and affordable and at low cost, that is because here at R. Good Funeral Services we believe it is your choice as to what you have at a funeral. Not only are our prices much more reasonable than others, we provide a personal service tailored for your Loved One.

The prices of our packages start from only £1,750. We can always add to our packages to suit your needs.

“What are third party costs?” – Third party costs are the Cremation fee, Doctors fees, Minister or Celebrant fee, Church and Grave costs. These costs we don’t have any control over, however, we have shown the Stockport fees below.

Therefore we have listed a basic funeral service option for you to which you can add any disbursements that you would like, as well as a direct cremation option.
