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.

We recently had the funeral of our dad (William Barrett) on 19 January. We are so glad we chose Jennifer Ashe & Son for their professionalism, empathy & kind and caring approach. Every last detail was carefully thought out and we were all comforted by the staff, in particular John in the lead up and Richard on the day. We couldn't have asked for anything more in the sad circumstances. A simple thing like a quick call from them to our mum the day after, to check that she was OK, was so thoughtful and very welcome. Jennifer Ashe & Son are brilliant; traditional values with a subtle modern twist. Thank you on behalf of all the family from Jennifer and Paul Barrett.

Really can not express how thankful on behalf of me and my family we are for Jennifer Ashe n sons funeral service, from the first time I walked in I was treated  with kindness , all of the staff were so professional yet so compassionate , I would like to say a very big thank you to Richard who talked me and my husband through planning the funeral as I’d never done it before and I was having to plan it for my mom and dad as it was there son and was to upset to do it there selfs and there elderly, he also was the head of the funeral on the day and phoned me up on the morning to talk me all through it to let me no what would be happening, all the lads on the day treated all my family on the day with so much respect and compassion including my brother, I’d like to say a very big thank you to John aswell as he was the one phoning me all the way through leading up to the funeral keeping me up to date with everything, and when he said he would phone he never let me down, and having to deal with me phoning asking questions, nothing was ever to much trouble, even said I could contact him out of hours if I was worried about anything, you truly helped to make the day that bit easier to get through, thank you x

Sam and his team provided a highly professional and helpful service.Their empathy, kindness and understanding of our feelings and needs, especially within the current restrictions, made very sad circumstances less difficult to endure.
