Fair Price Funerals offers complete traditional cremation services for the inclusive price of £2,350

Fair Price Funerals, one of Manchester’s leading independent award-winning funeral directors, is celebrating 10 years in business this year.

In that time, the funeral directors has conducted over 4,000 funerals and saved families over £10 million in funeral costs.

Previously featured on Radio 2 with Jeremy Vine, Fair Price Funerals was the first funeral directors to offer an inclusive price for a complete traditional service.

The business offers traditional funeral services at all crematoriums throughout Manchester and North West areas for ‘one fair price’ of £2,350.

The fixed price covers every part of the service, from the moment that a deceased person is collected from the house, hospice or nursing home, to when the curtains close at the crematorium.

This includes doctors fees, crematorium fees, third party costs, a hearse, oak-veneered coffin and staff, as well as silk flowers and displays.

Furthermore, Fair Price Funerals’ personal approach lets you choose the time of the service and at which crematorium in the region.

The only additional charge is whether you want a minister or celebrant to conduct the funeral or memorial service, as they charge a standard industry fee of £200.

Co-founder and owner of Fair Price Funerals, Mark Roebuck
Owner Mark Roebuck says: "For many years, pricing in the funeral industry was very confusing and far too expensive.
"We were the first to offer a plain, simple, true pricing for a service and continue to do that today.
“Our services are generally about half the price of the bigger funeral operators."

Fair Price Funerals specialises in cremations, but offers burial services also. Due to the varying charges involved with burials however, these cannot be offered at a fixed price.

An incredible 10-year journey

An advocate for regulation in the funeral industry, Mark has spoken openly about funeral poverty and the need for legislation, not only on Radio 2 with Jeremy Vine, but on Radio 4's You and Yours and BBC Radio Manchester.

Mark and business partner Adrian Tweedie founded Fair Price Funerals in 2011 after seeing the lack of affordable funeral service options available.

Over the years, the business has gone from strength to strength, with a reputation built on glowing testimonials and recommendations.

Originally based in Compstall, Fair Price Funerals is now based at new premises in Bredbury, which houses its offices and a 15-strong fleet of vehicles.

It remains a small, hands-on, very personal company run by Mark, Adrian and a handful of staff, including office manager Sally and assistant Jeanette.

Mark says: “The idea behind our company is simple. Work harder for less and put people before profit.”
