Don’t Needlessly Overpay for a Funeral in Airdrie or Coatbridge
Every life is unique and we believe that the way we commemorate them should be too.
We understand that you want the best for your loved ones and that is why we choose to charge less for our award winning services, so that you can do much more for them at an affordable price such as floral tributes, memorial stationery and jewellery.
Our cost includes all the essential services required to look after your loved one such as bringing them into our care any time – day or night- as well as preparing & dressing your loved one in your choice of clothes. Many funeral directors often hide these costs but amazing some don’t even include the cost of a coffin.
That is why we have created the comparison table that shows the true price of local companies for the services that most families want.
The table below is a comparison on the many peoples idea of traditional funeral which contains all the essential funeral director services, a quality wood effect coffin, a hearse and at least one family limousine:
|Funeral director fees||Included||£2205||Included|
|Fully lined and fitted wood effect coffin||Included||£450||Wood veneer, raised lid|
|Visiting your loved one any time by appointment||Included||Included||Included|
|Dressing your loved one in their own clothes||Included||Included||Included|
|Chauffeur Driven Hearse||Included||Included||Included|
|Chauffeur Driven Family Limousine||Included||£215||Included|
|Fosters Personalised Comparison*||£1,995||£2,870||N/A|
|Wood Veneer Raised Lid||+£150 (£335)||+£100 (£550)||Included|
|Donald McLaren Traditional Comparison*||£2,415||£3,090||£3,490|
We have been made aware that Donald McLaren also includes embalming and a raised lid veneer coffin so we have extended our comparison to display a true like for like comparison which shows that you will still save over one thousand pounds with Fosters so you can do more for your loved one, for example add a piper, flowers, or hold a celebration of life with plenty left to spare.

If I could award more stars I would. Fosters Cumbernauld has been absolutely fantastic, and I would like to specifically mention Yvonne who was an amazing help and support to us throughout everything. Such a difficult time and with the current pandemic only making it harder, you were wonderful. Yvonne is a total credit to Fosters and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and use them again in the future.
