For more than 130 years, Walter Carter Funerals has been setting the standard in the funeral industry, not only in the way we craft farewells, but also in the way we interact with our client families and the community at every touchpoint.
In an age of global conglomerates, Walter Carter Funerals has always retained its independence, as well as a strong sense of family – and with this sense of family comes a commitment to being open, honest and fully transparent in all we do.
As a family run business, we understand the overwhelming burdens that confront a family when faced with the death of a loved one. For this reason, we price our services very competitively.
There are certain inclusions and certifications that are necessary for all funerals, such as the disposition of the body for burial or cremation. Some of these costs are fixed and others will vary. However, there are many, many more elements that differ from funeral to funeral.
