Advice & Costs

Full Support & Advice

Here for you

Our aim is to make each funeral personal, unique and representative of both the loved one lost and those making the funeral arrangements. Full support and advice will be given along each step – before, during and after the funeral.

We are always keen to provide families with a clear and easy to understand estimate of the likely funeral costs. Being a family run business we are not forced to offer set packages and all our services are bespoke, however you may find the guide prices below helpful.


We are more than happy to meet with you with no obligation to talk through your requirements either at our premises or in your own home. We do feel that being able to speak about things in detail is very important for you and your family and you should feel comfortable that the funeral will be handled with care and respect.


No Two Funerals Are The Same

And no two funeral directors are the same either.
At J. A. Gormley, our prices include many of the funeral elements that other providers add on as extras.
To help you compare like-for-like, here’s our guide to pricing.


In September 2021 the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) introduced a legally binding order that requires all funeral directors to display a set method of pricing.  Unfortunately not all funeral directors offer the same level of service as the CMA neglected to address the fact that many funeral directors are not members of a recognised trade body such as SAIF or the NAFD. Therefore we urge you to be very cautious when comparing options based on these standardised price lists.


We are always happy to have a conversation with you before you decide on who to entrust with your loved ones care and funeral arrangements. You can call us at anytime on 077 3332 7532.


Funerals reflect a life lived and the personality of the deceased. There is no limit to how you can personalise a send-off whether that’s in the ceremony, use of materials, music or style of event. We encourage families to lean on our extensive experience and explore the possibilities – it costs nothing to have a conversation.
