Wigan Council owned cemetery or crematorium
The price quoted is based on a burial or cremation taking place at a Wigan Council owned cemetery or crematorium. There may be additional costs charged by other burial sites or crematorium either outside of the Wigan area, or run by someone other than Wigan Council. We will accommodate whatever your choice may be, and we will always let you know if there are any additional charges.

Third party costs

Third party costs (also known as disbursements) are highly variable charges that are paid out by us on your behalf.  These are paid to the local Council, Doctors and industry professionals.  They are individually itemised for each funeral.

Cremation is approximately £680 – £1,000 and is charged by the Crematorium. 

Doctor's Fees
It is important to know whether it will be a cremation as early as possible, as it is necessary to have the signature of two doctors on an additional certificate if cremation is the chosen option. Doctor's fees are approximately £164 and is charged by the doctor(s).

• Traditional black limousine (for up to 6 people) – Add £195
• Celebrant/Minister Humanist – Approx £200
• Attending church service prior to burial or cremation – Add £250

• Order or Service
• Alternative choice of coffin or urn
• Other forms of transport
• Visit our ideas page for other options

Embalming (optional but not essential)
Here at Cherry Blossom Funerals we believe the body should be left in a natural state without the need for embalming which is a very invasive process and therefore not a service we provide. However if for some reason you would prefer your loved one to be embalmed, this is something that we can arrange for you but it would incur an extra charge.

There is an extra mileage charge of £1.50 per mile for all mileage exceeding 20 miles.
