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.

Mears Family Funerals have done an excellent job of my late wife's cremation, the service and care they have shown has been very good even to the extent of helping and comforting me when I passed out at the church. Nichola has been more than helpful in all our dealings before and after the cremation. I would recommend Mears for any one requiring their services.

Everybody was very kind and could not have been more helpful in the funeral preparations and on the day. It made a very difficult time more bearable.

There are not enough ways to say thank you for all the care and dignity that was shown to me and my late husband. It has been the most horrific time of my life but I was shown so much compassion. I visited my husband every day and nothing was to much trouble, it is all the little touches that have made it so much easier like the chats in the office with a cup of tea after I had finished talking to my husband The whole place is spotless and the small family run business gives you the personal touch and they make you feel like your loved one is the only one there. I was never felt rushed or had to make an appointment to see my him I could come when it suited me. Thank you so much David I could not have got through it without your support xxx

Excellent service from the first moment we spoke to the day of laying mum to rest. All staff were very professional, attentive & compassionate. Quick reply’s to emails even when the office was closed. Always very accommodating to our requests even at short notice. Very competitive price too.  I would 10/10 recommend this company.  Thank you Nichola & the team including team at Biggin Hill care services & drivers.   Cecilia
