Carlisle Funeral Directors


Guide to Funeral Directors in Carlisle

Carlisle is a small city in the north of England. The population of the city itself is 75,000. This rises to about 100,000 when the surrounding area is taken into account. Rich in history, the city is famous for its proximity to the Scottish border and Hadrian’s wall.

There are eight funeral directors in Carlisle, with three cemeteries, the main being Carlisle Cemetery, which is also home to the crematorium. A woodland style burial is an option, and the send off for your loved one can take place in one of the many places of worship in the city, or even another venue such as pub or village hall.

Funeral directors in Carlisle can help you to give your loved one the send off they always wanted. There are eight funeral directors registered in the city and if you should choose a church for the funeral, there are many available, including the medieval Anglican Cathedral, although you will likely be encouraged to contact your local church first.

Although predominantly Christian, there are other places of worship such as a Buddhist centre and a small mosque. However, specialist services may be limited and travel to larger population centres such as Newcastle or Manchester may be necessary for these.

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.

This was an extremely difficult time for me facing making funeral arrangements on my own. The staff at the Carlisle branch were so kind and considerate showing genuine empathy. Jan who organised the funeral almost held my hand through the entire process, the service was beautiful. Not only Jan deserves praise but also the other members of staff I had contact with, Sharon and Wendy who helped me through the viewing process and the financial side with their kindness. I can't praise them enough.
