How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

A fantastic job by Sam and his team. We couldn’t have been happier with it. Great attention to detail throughout. Thanks to all.  Craig

Superb service. Very personal. Very friendly and supportive. Would highly recommend this company and myself and my husband will be making our arrangements through them. Couldn't ask for a better service.

From first contact Taylor’s were excellent and made the whole process simple.  This was even more impressive given the changing regulations around funerals at the time and that the funeral was held around 200 miles away.

From when I first spoke to Sam from Taylor’s I knew that I wanted to leave my dad in their hands. They were so helpful and kind all the way through, as my dad passed away from COVID-19 it was a very stressful and disturbing time. They kept me informed all the way of what was going to be happening and the steps we had to take. Sam even came to us to sign paperwork so that we didn’t have to go out in lockdown. We were devastated at not being able to see dad at the funeral home or dress him in his own clothes but Sam handled it so well and explained the reasoning behind everything because of these unprecedented And challenging times. Sam arranged for us to see dad in a closed coffin in a lovely calm and serine room and spend as much time as we wanted there with him, it was such a comfort, Jane looked after us so well. Samantha-the celebrant was so lovely, we talked through everything that the family wanted on the day of the funeral, even up until the last minute. They looked after dad so well. They assured us that we could call at any time for anything, big or small, concerning the arrangements or even just for a chat, which was so comforting. They kept dads ashes for two months, until I felt able to go and collect them, Jane looked after us when we got there, so kind and helpful. A wonderful team of people who know what they are doing and offer support, kindness and empathy.

From the moment my husband Dave was taken into their care right through until we had to say our goodbyes at his funeral the coop funeralcare Rubery treated us all with compassion, dignity and respect. Everyone included from the wonderful ladies in the office, the dignified and respectful drivers and pallbearers to the amazing respect and kindness shown by Vicky on the day of Daves final journey. We as a family could not have asked for a more dignified and personal experience at the most difficult time in our lives. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
