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.

We were supported with care and understanding at a most difficult time. David was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. He guided us sensitively through the process

Michelle Webster 3 months ago

The family received excellent service from Warren and the team. We were treated with compassion and patience and given all the information we required. When they came to the house to collect my Mum a few hours after her death, they were respectful and tender towards my Mum. I can highly recommend them.
