Funeral facilities in Luton

Luton is just a short drive away from Leighton Buzzard, and is fortunate to have lots of funeral facilities in the town and surrounding region. The town has its own crematorium called Luton Vale Cemetery and Crematorium, which can cater for both burials and cremations in Luton and the surrounding region. Additional cemeteries are located at Luton Church Cemetery and Luton General Cemetery for burials or the interment of ashes. For anyone looking for a green funeral, the nearest natural burial grounds are located in Keysoe (St. Albans Woodland Burial Ground), Olney (Olney Green Burial Ground) and Beaconsfield (GreenAcres Chiltern Burial Ground). Whilst these are some distance from the town, they provide an excellent option for anyone seeking a green funeral.

The cost of a funeral in Luton

There are lots of things to consider when you are planning a funeral, but one of the most important is how you will pay for it. The average cost of a funeral in Luton is £3500-£4500, so setting a budget can be helpful. Find out if the deceased had set aside any money to pay for their funeral, such as in a prepaid funeral plan or savings account, and then set a budget for what you can afford. Our team will work within your budget and always provide clarity over different funeral costs, providing guidance should you need it. Our aim is to help you arrange a meaningful funeral that avoids leaving you with any long term financial strain.

Taking out a prepaid funeral plan in Luton

Prepaid funeral plans provide an opportunity to plan ahead and pay for your funeral in advance. As well as offering you and your family the peace of mind that everything is taken care of, prepaid funeral plans allow you to pay for the majority of your funeral at today’s costs. This can work out as a significant saving over time.

At Dillamore we offer the Independent Way Plan from Golden Charter. This is a fully flexible plan that is provided by one of the UK’s largest funeral plan providers. Everything is tailored to your needs and wishes so that funeral choices, the amount you pay and the way you pay is completely bespoke to you. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation for anyone seeking information about the Independent Way plan and our team are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Green funerals in Luton

A green funeral is a more environmentally-friendly alternative to a traditional funeral and usually takes place in a natural burial ground. Everything is considered, including the coffin, materials used and the type of burial, to ensure a funeral is as natural as possible. Our team is here to support you, whether you are planning a green funeral at a woodland burial site or want a traditional funeral with more eco-conscious choices. Taking care of the environment is important to us, and we understand that we have a responsibility to ensure funerals respect the natural world. We work with a number of suppliers who can provide biodegradable and sustainably-sourced coffins and urns, and are committed to becoming a more environmentally-conscious company.

Aftercare services in Luton

The care we provide to families extends far beyond the funeral itself, and there are many ways we can support you in the months following a funeral service. Coming to terms with a loss takes time, and some people find they need additional help. We work with a dedicated bereavement counsellor who can provide emotional support and guidance to anyone coping with grief. Our team are discreet and would be happy to make an appointment on your behalf or put you in touch. In addition to this, we can organise a memorial for your loved one. We can help you choose anything from more traditional headstones and urns to unique and unusual memorial ideas. We are also happy to continue collecting and managing funeral donations long after the funeral has taken place, ensuring all donations are received at your chosen charity. We are dedicated to supporting families for as long after the funeral as we are needed.
