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.

Absolutely amazing service. From the meeting with Dominic at my home i felt less stressed and assured everything would be taken care of. I know its not something people want to think about but i would definitely recommend Memories to make the process as easy as possible during the difficult time.

We would like to thank Dominic and Sandra at Memories Funeral Services from the bottom of our hearts for the outstanding service they gave us following the passing of my Mum. From Day One they were compassionate, professional and clear - we always felt we could contact them at any time with concerns or questions, and know we'd get a quick response. Which is just what you need during such a difficult and confusing time! At the Chapel of Rest Sandra really helped me feel relaxed and gave me the warmth needed whilst others viewed. They really put our wishes at the heart of everything they did, and the result was a funeral that was truly the best we could have asked for, and at an affordable, fair price. Definitely reccomend.

Francesca Williams 2019-11-15 07:59:06

The service has been excellent throughout. From the first phone call to the service itself Dominic and Sandra provides a calm and reassuring presence and ensures the needs are met throughout in such a  difficult time. I would highly recommend their services.
