What is the cost of The Simple Funeral at Chichester Crematorium and what is included in the service?

A Simple Funeral at Chichester crematorium at a time and day of your choice is currently £2874 fully inclusive of all costs. The cost of a funeral is made up of three elements: our services; a coffin; and disbursements.

The price breakdown is as follows. 


Our Services £1095 which includes:

  • bringing your loved one into our care from a hospital within a 20 mile radius of Worthing. Extra mileage will be charged accordingly. Bringing your loved one into our care from anywhere other than a hospital (i.e. from home, a nursing home or a hospice) will incur an additional fee of £250.

  • Arranging a time and day convenient to you for the funeral.

  • the provision of a black hearse and four pallbearers.

  • The attendance of your personal Funeral Director throughout proceedings to ensure the smooth running of events.

  • a personal interview to receive your instructions at our premises or your home.

  • guidance on the Registration of Death.

  • completion of all legal necessities and documentation relating to the funeral on your behalf.

  • 24 hour support and assistance up to the time of the funeral.

  • Collection of floral tribute cards.

  • Distribution of floral tributes within a 5 mile radius.

  • Receipt, listing and distribution of charitable donations.

  • Arrangement of press notices.

  • provision of your loved ones' ashes in a functional container.


A coffin £295

  • Provision of a light oak effect coffin, fully lined and fitted, up to and including 6' 4'' x 24'' x 14'' (L x W x D).


Disbursements £1484 (third party payments paid on your behalf) which includes:

  • A religious, non-religious, or semi-religious service conducted by either a Minister, a Priest, a Humanist, or a celebrant (£250).

  • All Doctors' fees paid on your behalf (2 x £82 each= £164). If referred to the Coroner, deduct £164.

  • All Crematorium fees at Chichester crematorium paid on your behalf (£1070).


Therefore as an example, a dignified cremation at 12 noon at Chichester crematorium on a Friday with a hearse and pallbearers, an oak-effect coffin and a celebrant to conduct a semi-religious service would cost a total of £2874.

What our customers say

Brian Bracher

The whole team at Rounce were so friendly and helpful when I arranged my mothers funeral for Chichester Crematorium. They provided a personal service, but also one that was very reasonably priced. Their website makes clear all the individual charges, so you know what each part costs, whilst other funeral directors only give a lump sum cost, and all of which were much more expensive! We were also very pleased with the celebrant they organised. Overall, the whole family were very pleased and I would recommend Rounce Funeral Services without any hesitation.

Terry Colcombe


From the first call with Penny I knew we was going to be looked after my Aunt had passed away I was in Worcester and her next of kin was in Ireland but Penny made all the arrangements and when we all came together from round the country the service was excellent we could not have wished for a better send off for our Aunt. Thank you to everyone at Rounce funeral services.

Ragan Newton

On behalf of my dad James Mccue, we would like to thank Rounce Funeral home on their fantastic service and experience for the funeral of my auntie. They were very personal and completely understanding and went the extra mile. They took all the stress away from us and give my auntie a very dignified funeral. They also did this at a very reasonable cost and still providing a first class service.
