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.

The funeral went very well. Everything went according to plan.

Billy Renshaw 2020-03-08 10:10:40

Andrews services were unfortunately required again but as always provided a totally professional and personal service from start to finish. Kay directed everything from initial details to conducting Mams funeral and helped us all immensely on a very difficult day. Mam was immaculate at the chapel of rest and we feel we gave her the dignified respectful service she deserved. Thank you to all the team from the Renshaw family x

A beautiful funeral service provided by Chris & his team. Very compassionate & respectful every step from the first phonecall to the final curtain. Highly recommend this company for the professional service they provide, at this sad time. Thanks to Chris for a superb send off for our Mother, Grandmother, Sister & friend Christine Bolam.
