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.

This is the 1st funeral I’ve had to personally deal with from start to finish. Debbie and her amazing staff have made the loss of my mum such a memorable and I can say enjoyable process, yes as a family its very sad but on the other hand over the moon with the service provided. Every question we raised was answered in a loving way nothing was too much.  We have now found our forever go to funeral directors . 

Sarah Canning 2020-11-23 16:30:28

From start to finish everyone was helpful and caring. We felt that our mum was in safe hands. They listened and incorporated everything we wanted for our mums funeral. We were able to give her the send of she deserved. Shannon was extremely helpful and made every part of the funeral easy to arrange. On the day of the funeral Barry and Ryan were great they ensured the service went smoothly and looked after us at this hard time. Couldn’t recommend them enough.

So pleased we chose Debbie Bennett as our FD.  From the very beginning the family felt they had our interests at heart at all times & were able to guide us gently through the daunting & emotional decisions of planning a funeral for our loved one.  Ann at the Rainhill office was especially helpful, compassionate & professional & afforded us the time & space to make our decisions.  She kept us informed throughout & we always felt welcome.  The office in Rainhill is especially bright, modern & pleasant. Also we are indebted to  Ann for recommending Greenacres Woodland Burials to us for the Service.  It’s a very special place to say goodbye to a loved one & we are so pleased she did this.   I would definitely recommend them to you  An excellent score would have been awarded but for a few minor issues of detail.  However, overall the company provides a high standard of service,  is friendly & welcoming  & professional.
