Applefield Cottage

Hello, my name's Toby and my approach as a funeral director is flexible, caring, creative, positive and very personal - to help you celebrate your loved one's life in whatever way you wish - simple, traditional, humanist, eco, contemporary or alternative.

I work at your pace, ensuring you have time to think things through - and my approach is informal, open and relaxed.


I'm a celebrant too - so I can lead ceremonies and help plan celebrations.

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

As a carbon neutral business I source environmentally-friendly 'World Fair Trade' coffins and urns made of natural, biodegradable, sustainable and low-carbon materials. I use local flower farms whose flowers are sustainable, chemical free and have a low carbon footprint and use our own solar power system to run the office and electric vehicle.

All my fees are published here on the website. Unlike any other funeral director I've yet come across, I don't make a profit from things like coffins, ashes containers, funeral venue costs etc. You only pay what I’ve paid, so no hidden 'extras'.

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