Single Service or Double?

‘Traditional’ funeral services involve a church or chapel service followed by a crematorium or grave-side service, and have become known recently as ‘double services’. The undertaker needs to supply multiple vehicles and three or four staff for several hours, and has to charge accordingly.

By contrast modern ‘single services' have become very popular. They are sometimes held at a church, with the coffin driving away at the end of the service while the family remain for refreshments with the mourners. More often though, a service is held at the crematorium, or at a private chapel.

Single services can be much cheaper for the funeral director to provide because they often only require a single vehicle and two staff for a couple of hours. So many of the big corporate companies pressure families to just use their chapels.

At Lonergan & Raven's we have found that the traditional 'double service' is still preferred by many families. We do our best to keep our price for a 'double service' competitive with what the big corporations charge for 'single services' at their chapels.
