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 option 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 £1,750 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.
