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

A Simple Funeral at Guildford crematorium at a time and day of your choice is currently £2729 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 £1339 (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 Guildford crematorium paid on your behalf (£925).


Therefore as an example, a dignified cremation at 12 noon at Guildford 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 £2729.

What our customers say

William Street

We used Rounce recently and they were brilliant during a difficult time. They are focused on enabling you to have the funeral for the loved one you want and there is no selling in terms of extras. Their tone is great and they managed the funeral really well. Would recommend to anyone.

Victor Goldring


My wife and I thoroughly recommend this independent company for their respectful and professional handling of the cremation arrangements for her mother. They offered complete advice for all that needs to be done when a death occurs and were very helpful in answering our questions. They were the only Funeral Directors that we found that openly displays all the costs and fees on their website (which were very reasonable) and there was absolutely no 'hard selling' of higher priced items or services that some companies are known for - just a discussion to carry out our instructions.

Richard Groombridge

At a difficult time,it was like they were family I was confiding in.
A lot of weight was taken off of me by their helpfulness,knowledge and professionalism.
Thankyou so very much to Jan and everyone xx
