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.

Rouse & Co are a true gem in their field of business. They were recommended to me by my neighbours, for which I am most grateful. I am now keen to pass on the best word as they deserve recognition and gratitude for the superb quality of service and the ethos of their work. My dear Mum died at the peak of the Covid epidemic, and although she was SARS-CV2 negative all the CV19 restrictions applied to the funeral-related procedures. Those rules were then newly introduced and subject to daily amendments, which made funeral planning particularly difficult. The Covid crisis rules were very restrictive from both logistic and emotional points of view. Just imagine a funeral with only a handful of mourners permitted, each 2 meters apart, with no human touch allowed. I was devastated that my lovely Mum won't have a proper funeral that she so well deserved. But Mark Rouse took simply excellent care of her last journey in April 2020 and guided me through that saddest and most difficult of times with full understanding, compassion, empathy, and efficiency. Mark has been most supportive and kind to me, both pre- and post-funeral in a manner that was empathetic and professional in equal measures, while organising the funeral in the most efficient and smooth manner despite the dire external circumstances. I have thought about how he manages to balance the core of his demanding work with his compassion for clients as it must be a difficult and fine balance to achieve, and I concluded that he has a natural gift for this profession. I would like to thank Mark Rouse for executing Mum's funeral so well under such difficult circumstances, and for his much-appreciated insight, support, and help during my bereavement worsened by the fact that it has overlapped with the dreadful time of social isolation and distancing, and loneliness during the Covid-19 epidemic. I wish Mark Rouse & Co every success and satisfaction they so well deserve. Dr J Opacka CR0 9JQ 17/6/2020

Mark and his staff were great. Polite helpful friendly and caring and respectful. Nothing was too much trouble!!! The day of the funeral went smoothly and according to plan. If it can be said it made the day pleasant and a celebration of life.
