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 would highly recommend Hayley Owen. Hayley was warm, supportive and professional. She guided us through the process and offered advice. Nothing was too much trouble. We can’t thank Hayley and her team enough for their help and support during our difficult time.

Hayley and her team are just amazing, from our very first meeting she put us at our ease and completely reassured us about every single detail of Dads funeral! I can’t recommend Hayley and her team high enough!  Jo Stone (Trevor Baileys daughter)

Hayley made a very difficult time easier.  She answered any questions I had, told me what I didn’t need for my dads funeral.  The whole team are amazing and gave my dad the most respectful send off.  I will defiantly recommend to my friends and neighbours.  I would use them again

Simon and all at Fielders have been great throughout one of the toughest times. They have been very supportive the whole time, as well as informative and patient. Nothing was too much to ask, they certainly made the whole process slightly easier. Thank you

Such warmth shown to me & my family and Dave seemed to work out with us exactly what was right when choices have to be made for something we really didn't want to do. It was a very fitting send off thanks to their professionalism and understanding. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hayley Owen
