How much does a funeral cost?

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.

When my husband passed away in hospital a piece of valuable advice I was given: make sure you visit a few funeral directors as it has to be the right one for you. After visiting the local funeral directors where I live I truly was unsure who to go with, that's when I was recommended to speak to Jefferies. After a brief telephone call to find out some details as Jefferies was a little further away, I booked an appointment to speak to Maria the following day. After the meeting there was no hesitation in booking Jefferies as they were everything I was looking for even with recommending Paul the Celebrant who was amazing. The team at Jefferies are wonderful, very friendly, helpful, comforting and very patient when it came to us making decisions. Chris spoke about Ed with such warmth and I knew he was being well looked after. We went to visit Ed and he looked so peaceful and Chris being so attentive to detail and with huge respect had attached a remembrance poppy to Ed's top what with Ed being ex service. The day of the funeral came and everything was just perfect. I cannot recommend Jefferies Funeral Directors any higher.
