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.

Could not recommend Richard Ward Funeral Services enough for their help and support during this difficult time. They were professional, courteous and showed the right level of empathy. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped me through the process expertly. Particular thanks to Naomi who was an angel and thank you for looking after Elaine for me.
