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.

I found the team at Sillifants were so helpful. I I felt confident that they did their best to accommodate all our wishes. We were late starting the ceremony due to guests who were delayed, but they were so sympathetic and managed to delay the ceremony which was much appreciated by us all.
