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.

Amazing service. So kind and thoughtful. They made Mums day perfect and really looked after myself and my family. I would highly recommend Viner and Sons.

The service from all of John Weir funeral service staff was outstanding. From start to finish nothing was to much trouble.  At a difficult and emotional time when you have lost a loved one you need the best advice and direction and John Weir meet’s that criteria and more.

To begin I would like to say that Kayleigh was very compassionate and extremely professional, but I do have some issues, I stated that it was important to myself and my eldest daughter that we was able to see my husband especially because my eldest daughter was the only one that didn’t get a opportunity to see her father on the night of his death, I absolutely appreciate covid being a problem and the fact it was the Christmas period but I feel not enough was done to carry out our wishes and we have to deal with that,also the wrong date of my husband’s birth month was wrong on the order of service in which we are supposed to keep in memory of him .

Kayleigh was very supportive during the funeral arrangements for our late Mum  The first appointment was a lot of questions and decisions we had not even considered and was a little overwhelming initially . However we were given time to make a number of decisions and choices and returned a number of times  The end result was a tailor made service that we feel Mum would have been very pleased with .  On the day of the service the staff from Co-Op Funeral Services were professional and dignified at every stage  Thank you for all your support at this time , we would highly recommend you and your team
