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. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Although this is listed as a complaint against the Ilkeston office, it is actually the Stapleford office that was the biggest problem.  My fathers body was moved to the Ilkeston office because of the poor service at Stapleford. My father had prepaid for a funeral plan and I think that the service we got was inferior, as the money is guaranteed to the funeral director. I was thinking about doing this myself but following my experience I would not now. My fathers’ body was left at the hospital for about 3 weeks. The funeral director only provided a week of care for my father and would have only covered 15 days if he had been with them longer. I have used other funeral directors in the area and they care for the deceased for an unlimited time, without extra charge. The lady dealing with me at the Stapleford office was unprofessional, rude, argumentative and incompetent. I felt that the experience was about the money and not about customer care. I reported my concerns to the head office and they moved my father to Ilkeston and then the Principal Funeral Director, from the head office took over the arrangements. Apart from the attitude at Stapleford the problems were numerous, including the obituary going in less than a week before the funeral with the photo being originally placed upside down. The day of the funeral went very well due to the Principal Funeral Director, however the final straw was when I received a letter from the finance department about the charitable donations made at the funeral. Apart from spelling mistakes and an incorrect name, my deceased father somehow managed to donate a cheque to his own funeral! I have received an apology for all the problems but they should NOT have happened at a time when someone is grieving for the loss of a parent. There has been no compensation or non monetary recognition for the pain and suffering they caused me, instead I had to pay them extra money for items that were not covered in the funeral plan. I would definitely NOT recommend A W Lymn Funeral Directors

Gillotts funeral directors in Heanor helped us so much through a very difficult time. They talked us through everything and answered any questions that we had, our requests were acknowledged and all staff were professional, friendly and caring. Nothing was too much trouble and we would thoroughly recommend their services. Thank you.

Thank you so much, Andy, and Wendy and your team. You all were so professional and helpful in our difficult time. Everything was planed to the exact time. We will definitely recommend Lyme of Woodhouse if anyone asks.  Thank you so much  From Michael and Elizabeth

Can’t thank Gillotts enough for their support and professionalism.

Everything had to be done remotely because of covid and as I live 75 miles from Nottingham, but all your staff were kind, efficient and helpful, both making the arrangements beforehand and on the day itself.
