In the current economic climate many people are seeking  an affordable, low cost funeral option but wanting to maintain dignity and pride for their loved ones.

Bromleys Independent Funeral Services in Bolton are providing a service they are confident will be welcomed by many, Affordable Choice Funerals, while Serving with Dignity and Pride, all at the staggeringly low cost of only £995!

So what does the £995 include? And are there any hidden costs? I can hear the questions now…

They are true to their word, says owner Andy Peplow, they will transfer the deceased from any medical institution in England, Lowland Scotland and Wales and the costs for transfer equipment, staff and fuel are included.

The cost of £995 also includes the following:


  • Cremation fees paid to the local council.
  • Accommodation and shelter of the deceased in their own Chapel Of Rest.
  • Fully dressed coffin, complete with Gold effect furnishings and inscribed nameplate.
  • Funeral Director, Heasrse and Chauffeur, along with  additional professional Pall Bearers, to ensure the coffin is properly carried in to the Crematorium Chapel.
  • Arrangement for the cremated remains to be couriered in an appropriate receptacle to the Principle applicant within 5 working days of the funeral taking place.


NB. The only additional fees which might be required are the Doctor’s fees, required to sign the Cremation Certificates, £147 in most cases but if Her Majesty’s Coroner is involved these medical fees are not required.
