H.J.Paintin takes care of all the details of planning a funeral and will guide you through the day.

We are able to carry out funerals for all of your loved ones, including children.

The majority of funerals are carried out in a traditional religious service led by a member of the local Clergy, however many families now choose to have a non-religious, Humanist or Civil Ceremonies and we have a choice of Celebrants who can provide a highly personal and dignified celebration of life.

We are also experienced in dealing with other different faiths and cultures.


There are two separate parts which make up the cost of a funeral, the Funeral Directors Professional Fees and the disbursements which are fees paid on the family’s behalf such as doctors, cemetery or crematorium, church and clergy.

We assist each family individually, so costs will vary depending on choice and budget. We are able to meet any requirements from a basic funeral to the most elaborate ceremony and will be pleased to provide an itemised estimate so that each cost is fully explained.

Our normal payment terms require the disbursements to be paid in advance of the funeral with the balance invoiced approximately 14 days after the funeral date. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Funerals are VAT exempt.

In certain circumstances help towards the funeral expenses may be claimed from the Department of Works & Pensions (DWP).
