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.

Having previously enlisted the professional  services of Ben & his team at Andrew Grey for my late Father’s Funeral, I was more than happy to utilise their services again for my late Mother. In light of very difficult circumstances due to the current social distancing restrictions they performed a both caring and highly professional service. Many thanks again. Ann Mosley , Janet Selby and family.

Dealt very well in difficult circumstances surrounding the Corona Virus lockdown and closure of churches. Would recommend their care and dignity and respect.

Diane Millar 2020-03-23 09:06:04

Highly reccomend. Special thank you to Ben, Gillian and Kay for their guidance through a difficult process.

David Wilkinson 2020-03-16 18:54:53

Would give more than 5 stars if we could. My dad died suddenly and unexpectedly but the team were amazing from start to finish. Kay was our contact and she was the most genuine, kind, helpful and selfless person you could meet. She was there to help and guide us every step of the way and really focussed on our needs and what we wanted. Kay and the whole team were fantastic and we would not have got through this tough time without their support, love and kindness. They attended to every part of the day and on the day provided us with much needed support. I cannot speak highly enough of Andrew Grey’s funerals directors and I would recommend them to anyone which is not something I would do lightly. I can’t  express how special the team are and how fantastic they all are. I met most of the team and all of them were amazing. They looked after my dad in their care really well and nothing was too much trouble. I can honestly say my dad had the most fabulous send off and we would never have got through this most tough period of our lives without their support. Well done and thank you. Special thank you to Kay who got our family through this difficult time. Please use Andrew Grey if you ever need a funeral director as they really were the best. I work in customer service myself and this team were top class. Thank you again for your love, support, kindness and attention to detail we really appreciate it. Thanks, Dave.
