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.

I cannot recommend Nicholas O’Hara’s highly enough. They have supported me and my family through the funeral planning process with great professionalism, care and compassion. Nothing was too much trouble and I never felt rushed or under pressure to make decisions.  They accommodated all our wishes and made my husband’s funeral everything that we wanted for him.

Neil and George Scott really were amazing! Neil was so polite and helpful from the moment we started speaking! Having spoken with several funeral directors prior this was not always the case! The funeral was the perfect send off and all went as planned! Thank you so much for making such a difficult time in our families lives that much easier to cope with! The Ersahin Family! All the best

From first contact to the cremation the service was seamless.  Rory was very professional, he has a lovely manner and made me feel that he was holding my hand throughout the whole process.  I would happily recommend them.

Robert Hucklesby 2021-03-24 21:24:46

Very pleased with how things were coordinated. Rory looked after us every step of the way - offering good suggestions but never imposing. We like O'Hara because it feels like their family acts as our family. They set the right balance between professionalism and natural warmth. O'Hara have been there for us on three separate occasions and we know that we don't have to worry about a thing.

The family was very pleased with the professional manner that my my mother’s funeral was conducted and your sympathetic manner throughout. Thank you.
