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 compassion shown by all staff is excellent and they treat our departed loved ones with dignity and respect. I used Spencer and Peyton for my mother's funeral in 2015 and now in 2020 for my father's. Sadly the covid outbreak has severely affected how the funeral can be conducted but Katy and Daren have been so helpful in getting us through these hurdles. If you want to be certain your wishes will be followed through with dignity, kindness and efficiency, use Spencer and Peyton. Definitely recommend this company.

We used Spencer and Peyton for my brothers funeral who were professional and compassionate and couldn't do enough to ensure the day ran smoothly Scott was our contact during the process, who was absolutely excellent. From the minute we met him he showed us such compassion, made us feel so comfortable and did everything he could to ensure the arrangements went to plan. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we really felt we were in safe hands. Would highly recommend and we appreciated everything they did to ensure my brother was cared for and had a great send off.

The support we received from the team from our first meeting was excellent. Things were explained well and in ways we could understand. Nothing was too much trouble for them. As a result Paul’s funeral was everything we hoped. Supporting this independent funeral director was the right choice. Thank you to you all.

I cannot thank Spencer and Peyton enough for their services. Everything was made easy and the the thoughtfulness of all the staff second to none.
