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.

Can't fault the service, as always

Mark Wilkins 2020-10-16 16:42:34

We were not prepared for Mum’s Death, so when it came, we were a bit lost on what to do.  We called J. Worley on that Sunday morning, because they are a long established local firm.   From the first telephone call to them, they took care of maters for us, and in particular my Mum.  They were sensitive and respectful in carrying out their work. They kept us well informed at every stage, and with their connections, helped to make the Funeral Service and burial go smoothly. We are very happy that J. Worley managed to offer great and sensitive service during the challenges of COVID restrictions.

From start to finish the service was never short of professional. They made the proceedings so much more bearable.

All great, but should tell people on first meeting only 5 can view there loved one once, makes It hard with big family’s especially when some live 3 hours away, not heard of this before no one should have the right to tell a grieving family they can’t see there loved one for the last time because there’s more than 5, thank you for making an exception though but will make sure in future on choosing a funeral director to check this first.

I have nothing but praise for J Worley who handled my father's funeral very well, especially in these difficult times. I would certainly recommend this family firm to others.
