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.

Ian George organised a direct cremation for my husband who had frequently said this it what he wanted. I was consulted at all times about the arrangements, treated with kindness and courtesy and felt confident that all would go well. It was quiet, calm, peaceful, respectful and dignified funeral. I was impressed by the way Mr George handled everything and how smart everyone was, including crematorium staff.

A very professional, but personal service. Ian and his team were very attentive to every facet of the process. I feel as though we gave our Dad a great send off, and I know that he is giving me a big 'thumbs up' and saying "thanks lads" which is in no small part due to the service that Ian and his team provide.

Ian and Denesha, and the rest of the team are every bit the warm, family-run business that you would want to have in the time of bereavement, without any compromise on professionalism.
