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.

Liam was a very nice, kind man to work with - very patient during these hectic Coronavirus days.  We look forward to having a memorial service at his funeral home when circumstances allow us.

The level of service was excellent; discrete, professional, efficient. I would highly recommend Southgate and Roberts.

I cannot thank Liam and all of the team enough for the care and support they showed me at such a difficult time, after the loss of my dear Mum. Liam made the funeral arrangement process so much easier with his kindness and understanding. I was kept informed of the funeral arrangements at every stage, and had peace of mind that my Mum was in safe hands. When I visited my Mum in the Chapel of Rest, Liam was right beside me, supporting me. I could see how much love and care had been shown to Mum, she looked absolutely beautiful. I was given as much time as I needed to say goodbye to my Mum, and that meant so much to me. On the day of Mum's funeral, Southgate and Roberts done my Mum proud. Everything went perfectly, from start to finish. The MInister who Liam put me in touch with delivered a heartfelt and poignant service. Southgate and Roberts provided the most beautiful funeral flowers, my Mum would have loved them. Liam and the team supported me right up to leaving the Crematorium. Many of the mourners commented on how well it all went. When picking Mum's ashes up, the kindness shown by Julian, made a sad occasion easier to bear. I would highly recommend Southgate and Roberts to anyone who sadly finds themselves in the position of needing a Funeral Director. I can look back now, and realise, I don't think I would have got through such a sad time without the knowledge that Southgate and Roberts were lovingly preparing Mum for her final journey - the reassurance and comfort I got from knowing this was priceless. Thank you all so much. Heather Sparkes
