Funeral Costs

The Thorne Family at Kemp and Stevens have been supporting the bereaved of Alton and the surrounding area for three generations. It is this connection to our community that drives our approach to funeral service and pricing.

We offer everything from direct cremation to full bespoke ceremonies.

We do not believe that important aspects of the grieving process should be denied on the basis of cost, therefore we are proud to be able to offer a chapel visit included in our most basic services. Also no extra charges will be made if an out of hours call is necessary to convey the deceased to our premises.

A bereavement will often cause uncertainty and additional stress on a family. It is with this in mind that we do not ask for any funds “Up Front” so that the funeral may proceed without adding any more stress at this difficult time. After your needs are agreed during the arrangement appointment, you will receive a full written estimate and confirmation of arrangements in the post. The final invoice will be sent after the funeral.
