3. Ordering Services

3.1. Our Services are set out in full at https://farewill.com/funerals. The total amount payable to us is subject to additional fees. We will confirm the amount payable either by email or over the phone and provide an email receipt.

3.2. We may offer services outside of our normal Services, for which additional fees may apply, at our discretion (for example delivery of cremated remains to an address outside of England and Wales).

3.3. The Services do not provide for a viewing service so it will not be possible for you to view the person who has died once they have been collected by us.

3.4. When ordering the Services, you need to complete relevant paperwork which we will send to you. By completing and returning the relevant paperwork you agree to these terms, as well as our Website terms and Privacy Policy. Where there is a conflict, these terms take precedence.

3.5. By ordering the Services you confirm that:

3.5.1. you’re over 18 and have authority to make arrangements for the funeral of the person who has died;

3.5.2. you’re responsible for payment of the service;

3.5.3. you’re not aware of any disagreement relating to the service being provided for the person who has died;

3.5.4. where applicable, you have relevant permissions for burial from the grave owner.

3.6. If you have made or intend to make an application for a DWP Funeral Payment (a registered payment offered by the Department of Work and Pensions intended to help pay for a funeral) or any other financial assistance or grant to help you pay for the funeral, you will still be responsible to us for payment in full.

4. Liability

4.1. If there is a subsequent dispute that delays or makes the funeral impossible, you may be asked to make alternative arrangements and/or pay a reasonable amount for us to do so on your behalf.

4.2. Although we endeavour to be prompt, efficient and reliable, all bookings of dates and times regarding the Services cannot be guaranteed due to circumstances beyond our control. We will attempt to contact you as soon as we are made aware of any changes to booked dates or times, using the details you have provided, and advise you of alternative arrangements.

4.3. To avoid the risk of loss or damage to the jewellery or valuables of the person who has died, we would advise that you remove such items before we bring them into our care. If you decide to leave any items with the person who has died you will be doing so at your own risk. You should not assume that we are aware of any items on the person who has died. Even if we are aware of them we cannot accept responsibility for their safekeeping.

5. Right to cancel

5.1. Until you accept these terms and any relevant paperwork you may cancel your order and receive a full refund of any payments made.

5.2. The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation & Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 gives customers the right to cancel agreements within a cooling-off period of fourteen days. By accepting our terms and returning any relevant completed paperwork you grant us the authority to start work on your order, waiving this cooling-off period.

5.3. This agreement may also be cancelled before the Services are fully delivered, either by us if you fail to honour your obligations under these Terms, or by you communicating to us in writing, cancelling your instructions. If we or you cancel your instructions you may, depending upon the reasons for cancellation, be asked to make arrangements and/or pay a reasonable amount for us to transfer your order to another provider.
