Kevin Moxon Independent Funeral Directors are independent funeral directors operated by husband and wife team Kevin and Jayne. Based on Ramshill Road in South Cliff area we work hard to service the local people using our years of knowledge and experience. Kevin has nearly 20 years professional experience directing funerals and being a funeral manager. We are proud of our independent business model and as a result our families satisfaction is our focus, over shareholders and corporate interests. We are passionate about providing local families the best possible service at a fair and affordable cost and being clear about all the costs involved. We believe trust is needed more than ever in your time of need and sadness and therefore we are always friendly, open and honest at all times. We pride ourselves on the flexibility we are able to offer as an independent business, ensuring your loved one gets the send off they deserve and helping you plan it exactly to your requirements.
Our business ethos revolves around our Client Charter . We promise to give you the EARTH without charging it.
We promise to be:
This moral code is the foundation our business is built on and we have worked hard to develop a local reputation for exceptional customer service and transparency in an industry full of confusion and often surprise charges.
The Team here at Kevin Moxon Funerals are highly trained , experienced, friendly and prepared to go the extra mile for you during your time of bereavement. If you would like any information about our services then our reliable team will be more than willing to chat to you about how we can help you.
Kevin says "I feel there is a lot of confusion around the actual cost of a funeral
I wanted to offer clearer and transparent 'FULLY INCLUSIVE' packages with a set price"
This includes :
Funeral Directors Services, a suitable coffin,
Hearse and Staff for the Funeral.
Our prices include ALL necessary disbursements (Cremation fees & Doctors Certificate)
That way the client knows exactly what the overall costs are at the outset and are not shocked when suddenly fees are added to the funeral costs for Cremation or Doctors fees. This gives clearer costs to clients when making the decision which Funeral Directors services they choose to use.
As an 'Independent' family business we can offer greater flexibility of choices without the constraints of Management edicts, dictating what we can offer. We were delighted recently, following due inspection and compliance visit to be accepted into membership of SAIF (Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors). This further demonstrates our ability to meet high standards of care and professional operating methods as accredited by an Independent assessor. We have the same care facilities as a modern hospital does for your loved ones and we are proud to serve our community. Through SAIF we can now offer our families a free bereavement counselling service (SAIF Care) should they wish to utilise this.
All our packages offer set prices and are inclusive though we still offer flexibility within them to meet your needs. Talk to us with your requirements and see how we can help.
Planning Ahead -
Given ever increasing funeral costs it makes sense to plan ahead and many people are now realising the benefit of having a pre paid funeral plan. Not only does this offer peace of mind to you and family on a financial level but for those left dealing with a bereavement you can leave your personal instructions on the type of funeral you want. This can include Religious services, Hymns, Music etc and takes pressure and worry off your loved ones at the time of bereavement.
We offer Pre Paid Funeral Plans through 'Golden Charter' and will be happy to explain them to you further, either in our office, or at your home. If you have an existing pre paid plan it may be you want to nominate us as your preferred Funeral Directors for future. if you require any help please contact us. Our plans can be paid by instalments and are one of the most competitively priced plans on the market. Most people ask "where does the money go to?" All monies for funeral plans are normally held by a trust fund managed by companies separate to the Funeral Director and guarantee to pay the costs of your funeral to the chosen Funeral Director when the need arises.
Kevin, and Jayne, are both brass musicians and are often called upon to play Last Post for Military funerals or civic events. Both of us play in a local Brass Band, Simply Brass in Scarborough and Kevin plays Soprano Cornet for East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) Band. Kevin and Jayne are also members of St. Mary's Church Choir, Scarborough.
If you need help on music suitable for any service then we are ideally experienced to be able to offer good advice on this matter also.
We can now offer clients a service with our partners at legacy life expressions to provide a unique keepsake or piece of jewellery containing the fingerprint of your loved one. If you wish to use the service we use a hand held scanner to digitally capture your loved ones fingerprint and this then is stored electronically and can be used at anytime to create a unique piece of jewellery , such as a necklace or ring or etched onto a glass ornament. Once a fingerprint is obtained any items can be ordered at anytime now or in the future and offers a unique means to remember your loved one.

Talk about funeral wishes with family so they may know what you want.
Slow down don't feel rushed into funeral arrangements that's when sometimes bad decisions are made.
Shop around - Costs can vary hugely so check pricings.
Ask about 'Simple Funeral' options.
Can you get financial help with funeral costs? Check with DWP or Citizen advice bureau.
Cremation or Burial as a preference? Burial is usually more expensive.
What makes a 'Good Send Off'? At a funeral, people remember thought and goodwill rather than lavish expense.
