The funeral account

Every funeral invoice from Watersons Funeral Services is individualised. It will generally include professional service fees, mortuary services, vehicle transfers, and a casket. Other items may be included and will be itemised such as: crematorium, ashes and memorial fees, doctor's fees, newspaper notices, flowers, printing, catering, a death certificate, gratuities and donations, multimedia and audiovisual, and monumental options.

An estimate

With every funeral we will give you an estimate of the costs of the funeral that you have arranged with your funeral director.

Overdue accounts

Failure to make payments by the due date may result in additional recovery costs and recovery steps being taken. Interest may be added to a funeral account that remains unpaid.


The payment due date

The funeral account and Death Certificate will be mailed or couriered to the person responsible for the account within 7 to 10 days from the day of death with payment a further 14 days from the date of the account.

The Due Date for payment, which will be indicated on the invoice, will generally be three (3) week after the date of death.  An account finance charge will be added when payment is not made by the Due Date.
