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 dealt mainly with Lucy but all the staff i spoke to at Fielders were helpful and courtious. Lucy organised everything with efficiency and kindness during the process of arranging the funeral of my father. The service was second to none and i would recommend Fielders to anyone.

The team at J G Fielder is truly wonderful: they have been supportive but never intrusive, accommodating in every sense and make things so much easier for the family during a very sensitive and difficult time.  Would not hesitate to recommend them.

The customer service received from initial telephone through to funeral service was excellent. The staff at Fielders showed the utmost empathy whilst helping me to plan my brothers funeral, and made what would have been a daunting task easier for me. Simon who was the funeral director guided me through every stage of planning and showed an eye for detail with every aspect of my brothers funeral. When I had to phone the office the service received from Helen was extremely helpful and put me at ease. From start to finish the customer service our family received was excellent, resulting in an amazing send off for our brother.
