Conditions of Payment

Disbursements should be paid to Leverton & Sons Ltd in advance of the funeral. Disbursements are fees external to Levertons and include cremation or burial costs, ministers or non-religious celebrants, flowers, receptions, doctors, etc. An invoice for the remaining bill is issued a week after the funeral. We expect the account be paid within a month of the date of the invoice. A payment plan can be organised if necessary.

The total charge for a low-cost ‘Direct Cremation’ package has to be paid in advance.​

If the funeral is to be paid for by the estate of the deceased, present the death certificate along with an invoice from the funeral director before the funeral to ensure that sufficient funds are available. Disbursements still have to be paid in advance by the estate, next of kin or executor.

Should you qualify for financial support from the Social Fund (DWP), you will still have to pay certain fees in advance. Please be aware that the Social Fund will not cover the entire cost of a funeral. Our professional fee is £2,170 and the Social Fund will pay a maximum of £1,000 towards that fee. They will also cover cremation or the cost of a modest private grave. All other costs must be met by you personally.

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
