What looks different now

Since last week, if you walk by any of our branches you will see a Price List in each of the windows. You will also find this in a larger poster format inside our reception areas along with another poster containing other information about current crematorium prices, ownership disclosure and terms of business. All of this is available to download from our website, via email request and in paper format from our branches/post.

It may look a bit ‘up front’ and perhaps jarring to have prices brought to clients’ attention so quickly before we are able to have a conversation. However, it is now mandatory to display our information in this way as new regulation has come into effect across the profession introduced by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

This is a move by the CMA to make pricing and ownership more transparent and accessible to clients and we think this can only be a good thing. Good and reputable funeral directors are already doing this. As a company we have always provided online and printed price lists in easily accessible formats and have in fact been recognised for the level of transparency and clarity in which we present our information. As early adopters of a company website within the profession we have always listed our prices along with our services and are committed to presenting them clearly.

You will still be able to find our full – what we call ‘Comprehensive’ price list which has all of the services and fees itemised. However, what you will see on our window and reception posters are our prices presented in a Standardised format as required by the regulation. The purpose of this is to enable clients to compare Funeral Directors prices by displaying simple funeral service options in the same way throughout the profession.

We still feel, as with all of our services, that it’s important that we are able to explain and take you through the options that are right for you. Listing items is helpful but every funeral is different and listening to the bereaved and tailoring what each family needs, enables us to show you what is applicable and suitable. It can often be a lot of information to process at a very difficult time and the new formats still require explanation and conversation. This is central to our role and where our relationship based on trust begins.

We are still proudly independently owned, and managed, by our family – as we have been since 1789 and are happy to confirm this in our Mandatory Information posters.

Please do and come in or phone to chat to us if you would like to know more about us or our pricing and the services that we provide. As always without obligation or any pressure.

Let’s talk about Direct Cremations
Whether it’s because of cost or circumstance, a formal ceremony may not be for everyone. There has been a noticeable movement away from the traditional funeral in recent years with many opting for a Direct Cremation. It may be due to the cost-of-living crisis or indeed the aftermath of Covid when people weren’t able to […]

My heartfelt thanks go to Craig and the team who took care of my Dad earlier this month. From start to finish it was perfect. Their care and professionalism was spot on.

The service we have received from Levertons has been empathetic, understanding and non judgemental. We dealt with Carmel and she was efficient, and thoughtful, making a difficult time, easier to manage. My uncle died alone, having lived a solitary life. As a family we had no idea of his wishes, but knew that a large busy funeral would not have fitted in with who he was. We opted for a quite non attended cremation, and it was arranged seamlessly, and efficiently, helping the family that remained, to have peace that he had some dignity at the time of death. Due to the distance, it was all managed online and over the phone, which meant easy communications to all the family. We have used Levertons for all family in London and would recommend then time and time over. Thank you from us

After what has been a testing couple of months, Leverton handled the funeral of my late Brother Stefan with compassion and dignity, and arranged for his ashes to be scattered at Golders Green Crematorium in the same place as his parents. I would like to thank them for their patience and kindness throughout this difficult time.

Kathryn was kind, patient and always flexible with arrangements. It's a compliment to say she was also entirely professional: when you're organising a funeral you're not usually at your most efficient, so it's essential to have someone who is. My thanks to her and her team.

I cannot recommend Levertons highly enough. Craig Parker was so helpful, and made all the arrangements for my mother's funeral, and his colleague Lorna Walkden ensured that everything went smoothly on the day. It mean that I could focus on the event, without worrying about the arrangements. A source of great comfort and reassurance at a very difficult time.

Highly recommended, thought Levertons were professional and dignified throughout the whole process of the funeral arrangements. My particular thanks goes to Lorna for her professionalism through our experience in dealing with Levertons
