How much does a funeral cost?

I cannot praise Tim enough. He went above and beyond to give Stuart the very best  send off. He was very considerate and kind to everyone. I could not have asked for a better service. Tim is, in my opinion the best undertaker in all of England. Always there when you need him. And I thank you immensely.
