At Lamb’s Funeral Service we are committed to being open, honest, and transparent with our pricing and we work closely with every family to provide a unique funeral that best suits their needs personally and financially. For a bespoke quote please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0191 5261846.

As a family business we don’t really believe in set “packages” and we would rather work in a flexible manner and only charge for services that are needed and/or requested. Having said that we know that often the cost of a funeral for a loved one can be an added stress during an already difficult time, so we have created the below packages as examples of some options available. These packages have no hidden costs and are accurate total prices including all disbursements.

We provide a 24 hour service 7 days a week and are always at the end of the phone. You cannot choose the time of your loved ones passing and we do not believe in the concept of “out of hours” charges.
