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.

No words can say how wonderful Viner & Sons have been from the start of the arrangements for our dear John to the end. Clare and ALL the team have been so attentive and so supportive at such a sad time. We could not have hoped for a more beautiful funeral to say our goodbyes. Thank you to everyone.

Thank you for making my Mothers funeral go so smoothly. Right from the first meeting you helped my sister and I through the process. Nothing was too much trouble. Will always appreciate your help. Would recommend your services to anyone. Thank you once again.

Viner & Sons deliver a professional service combined with sensitivity and compassion at what is inevitably a very difficult time. All the staff are lovely, especially Clare who recently helped to arrange my husband's funeral, and Nathan who was in charge on the day. We cannot recommend Viner & Sons highly enough.
