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.

Freedom Funerals provided an excellent service. They listened to us, made helpful suggestions and provided information, then responded to our needs sensitively and without the slightest pressure. Not dreary or austere, they were respectful without being intimidating or over-formal. They helped us get through a difficult time and to made the approach and the day of the funeral a step on our healing journey. Our thanks to Freedom Funerals.

Lee at Freedom Funerals was fantastic in organising my Nan’s funeral, he was so accommodating and did everything we asked for. Nan had the perfect send off and it was all down to Lee and his team, and our fantastic celebrant. Thank you so much Freedom Funerals!
