Supporting you in any or all funeral arrangements
High Level Of Dedicated Funeral Care
After a loved one passes away, there are a multitude of arrangements to be made. This is also a very emotional time and dealing with the logistics of funeral arrangements is not necessarily how you want to spend this period of mourning. It can be a very difficult task. Sonja Smith Elite Funeral Group supports you by taking care of all the practical arrangements to ensure a final farewell with care, compassion and dignity.
Sonja Smith Elite Funeral Group offers a high level of dedicated funeral care, advising you of all your options and choices and overseeing that the funeral arrangements are made in accordance with your wishes, and those of the Deceased.
A Meaningful Experience to be Remembered
The days following the death of a loved one will challenge you emotionally and mentally, with many more decisions to be made. Be assured that you and your family will be taken care of by the Sonja Smith Elite Funeral Group.
We are specialists with a wealth of experience in caring for the deceased person, your family, and the legal requirements at this time. We will ensure that whenever possible, your wishes are met, and we may have very useful suggestions that you may not have considered. Funeral arrangements are very personal; some people choose a minimalistic funeral whilst others prefer a more elaborate service.
“We help to make sure that every funeral we arrange is a meaningful experience that will be remembered.”
Our role as Funeral Director is to represent you and your family with absolute integrity, respect and discretion at all times. We will help you to honour and cherish a life well lived – and at the same time help make the lives of those left behind a little easier.
We have Experience across All Religions and Cultures
We will assist you in the completion of all documentation and make the necessary arrangements with the church, chapel, other venue of choice, cemetery or crematorium on your behalf.
We will provide confirmation of all the funeral arrangements, together with a detailed estimate of the costs.
Thank you for your trust in us.
We’re available 24 hours a day to provide help, care and support. Contact Sonja Smith Elite Funeral Group using our branch finder tool or make an online enquiry.

Funeral costs and payment
We will keep you informed about the costs of the funeral from the outset. We will explain to you what the options are and how much they cost so that you are fully informed about the choices you make. When you have made your choices, we will provide you with a Tax Invoice of the funeral costs.
The costs of a funeral are made up of the following:
- Professional services include appropriate advice and support, liaising with third parties and personnel required to arrange the funeral, bringing the deceased into our care, taking care of the deceased at our facilities, presentation of the deceased and conducting the funeral service, including the provision of a hearse, lowering device, etc.
- The cost of the coffin or casket.
- Additional charges such as transport and after-hours fees.
- Payments made on your behalf, known as disbursements, which include fees for the doctor, minister and cremation, etc.
We kindly ask for payment to be effected 24 hours prior to the commencement of the funeral service. Please be advised that we do not submit Tax Invoices to a solicitor for payment by the estate of the deceased. You remain responsible for the account being paid in accordance with our terms and conditions.
