Applefield Cottage

We are flexible, creative, caring and positive - to help you say goodbye in whatever way you wish.

We're also celebrants which means we can lead ceremonies - and help plan celebrations too.


Feelings of sadness and loss are natural - expressing warmth, humour and thankfulness are important too.

​How much you spend has nothing to do with how much you love.

Celebrating a life in simple, thoughtful ways has great meaning.

We are a carbon neutral business working in sustainable, green-minded and eco-friendly ways. We source environmentally-friendly and WFTO fair-trade coffins and urns made of natural, biodegradable, sustainable and low-carbon materials. We support local flower farms whose flowers are grown not flown, are sustainable, chemical free and have a low carbon footprint.

All fees are published here on our website.

Unlike any other funeral directors we've yet come across, we don't make any profit from 3rd party fees for things like coffins, ashes urns, funeral venue costs etc. You pay what we’ve paid - so no hidden 'extras'.

After we've discussed everything we'll give you a written estimate, confirming arrangements, timings and costs.
