BOOKING TERMS

 

Funerals and Memorials

Cancellation:

You have a right to cancel a contract with me without giving any reason within 14 days of entering into the contract. In order to exercise your right to cancel, you must inform me of your decision in writing (letter sent by post or email). You are advised to obtain proof that you have informed me.

To meet the cancellation deadline, you should let me know that you wish to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
