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.

The company have been very helpful and supportive in looking after my dad’s funeral arrangements. They made sure I knew what I needed to think about and provided options which made making decisions easier and less stressful. They have always been immediately available, either by phone or email and nothing has been too much trouble. I have known throughout my dad was safe and being treated with the utmost care and respect throughout. It has been a great comfort to the family.

Our meetings with Katrina were very relaxed and with genuine warmth and consideration. She made the process very much easier at a very difficult time as Chloes passing was so unexpected. Nothing was to much trouble and all was arranged to our satisfaction. On the day of the funeral our funeral director was excellent. Dignified, with just the right amount of respectful, gentle humour that made the send off rather special. We are very grateful to all for the warmth and professionalism shown to us during this difficult time.

Anderson Maguire could not have done anymore for my family at this very sad time. Alison could not have been anymore helpful at this very trying time. The funeral went without a hitch and all staff involved treated my family impeccably. First class service.

I can't thank Ryan and all of Anderson Maguire enough for the service they gave my brother Joe . From the start Ryan offered so much comfort to the family in order to make sure the funeral ran smoothly . He showed compassion and empathy towards us which was the most difficult time of our lives the family has ever had to endure 💔. If it was not for Ryan I don't think we would have able to have organised the funeral as well as he did as he guided us every step of the way in a very professional manner. My brother got the best send off ever and this was all down to Ryan as the timings were just perfect . Thanks again from the Duffy family x
