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.

I can not thank EVERYONE enough at Viner & Sons! Every member that I spoke to listened to our every request, had patients, was kind and most of all had respect for my lovely dad as though he was still with us. I spoke frequently on the phone, we popped in several times and nothing was a bother! Lorraine & Clare arranged my father's funeral and they were so lovely. Visiting the directors to make arrangements was an experience that we were dreading but it was calm, friendly, they didn't rush and was so attentive. The day of days service was just beautiful. My brother was late due to his car overheating so he was terribly upset. It was Dan that actually kept the calm. A wonderful man and again nothing was too much trouble. Dan explained to everyone how to carry dad and he was so graceful. Lorraine gave us a little book to read to the grandchildren to help them understand of dad's passing.. the whole experience made saying goodbye to our precious dad that much easier and we will all be FOREVER grateful to Viber & Sons. You truly have a wonderful team to be proud of ♥️♥️

From start to finish, T Allen handled Dad’s funeral with respect and sensitivity. Communication was excellent at the planning stage, and the pall bearers and conductor were kind and friendly on the day. (Thank you to them for wearing the Gillingham FC ties for Dad!)  The media company, Obitus, which T Allen use to produce the music, photo tribute and video was also very professional.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Viner and sons have been caring and considerate from the first meeting. They have always been on hand to answer queries and to resolve any concerns we had leading up to the day of the funeral. They have acted with respect and sensitivity throughout and nothing was too much trouble.   The actual day itself went like clockwork. It was of course a sad occasion but everything was exactly how we had planned it and we felt that we gave my Father a good send off and he would have been so proud. My Mother took great comfort (as did we all) from the funeral and the way it all went.  The respect and patience shown by all at  Viner & Sons was deeply appreciated by all the family. Many thanks to you all.
