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.

I am very happy with the organization and professionalism for how my father's funeral was conducted. Special mention is Jackie, Tracey and all the west Norwood branch staff. Also my father was very well looked after by your team he was very well respected as a living being and nicely kept and dressed. All your team are understanding and caring. Please to say again about Jackie who was at south Norwood branch helped me a lot with the arrangement and spoke to me few times to comfort me. Thanks to you all.

From the moment I walked into the office of Levertons, Fortis Green I felt utterly supported and gently guided through the process of organising my mother's funeral. Deborah, our Funeral Director, understood exactly the difficulty of making decisions when you are newly bereaved, and her unfailing patience and respectful guidance helped me create the most wonderful send off for my mum. She has gone beyond what I would ever have expected a Funeral Director's service to provide; one of the most touching and comforting things she did for me was to create a website where I and others could post pictures of my mother, light a candle for her as well as leave details of the service. All Deborah's colleagues were similarly professional and sensitive and always calmly organised. I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Deborah and her team for their exceptional care and respect they took of my mother and my family.

Linda and her team were extremely professional and very helpful in dealing with all the formalities and arrangements for our 13 year old daughter's funeral. Everything from the booking of venues right down to offering the usage of their Beckenham branch office as changing facilities for the Stormtrooper Honour Guards that we had for the send off on the day itself! If you're having to read this review as a recommendation, we will first send you our deepest condolences, but would then say to you that you can place your trust in Linda and her team... They will take care of the matters at hand without any fuss and in the most discreet manner should that be required.

Jackie at the Lewisham branch of Steven Mears was very friendly and helpful and the funeral directors on the day were very professional, making sure that everything ran just the way I wanted it to. Thank you.
