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.

On behalf of all of the family we would like to thank Lee and his team for making a difficult time a whole lot easier with good advice, being able to sit down and talk through requirements in these difficult times and being on hand when required. The funeral went off without any problem and was all as planned, you know you are dealing with genuine people when they ask you if you are going to make use of the flowers after the service as if not they will go and lay them on graves of people of less fortunate people who had no one, nice touch I thought. Thank you for your kind service and would thoroughly recommend. Mrs D. Garnham
