Nelson Funeral Plans

So… How Much Does A Funeral Cost?

This will depend on choices you make regarding items such as flowers, newspaper notices, cemetery or cremation fees, and catering.

We do our best to cater for all walks of life and offer four funerals plans to suit your needs. If there is a plan that we need to tweak so that the funeral is specific to your needs we are more than happy to do that.

We can provide a free no-obligation quote, and come to you so that it is hassle free.

You should talk with us so our service will suit your needs and financial situation. Simplicity Funerals will charge for its services, but tell us if you have any concerns about money.

We can help you talk with agencies such as Work and Income who may provide a funeral grant, based on your level of assets and income.

If death was by accident, ACC may be able to help out.

Other entitlements are possible too, including grants for ex-service personnel and their families.
