Those working within the family business are proud to provide a standard of professionalism, dedication and depth of knowledge, recognised by members of the public, professionals and other funeral directors.

As a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors, Austin’s Family Funeral Directors adheres to a strict Code of Practice. This ensures each and every funeral service is carried out to the highest professional standards, for your peace of mind.


Choosing your funeral plan – important information

You can buy a plan for yourself or on behalf of someone else. The funeral plans offered are designed to cover the funeral director's own costs. As long as they carry out the funeral and the requirements don't change, neither you nor your family will be asked to pay a penny more for these costs, regardless of when the plan is needed or what happens to costs in the meantime.

The plans can also include a contribution towards any third party costs (also known as disbursements), such as burial or cremation costs. Please refer to the Key Features Document and Terms and Conditions for more information.
