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 could not fault the service we received from the Co-op, it was faultless. Alison & her team really looked after us, they kept in touch with us every step of the way. By doing this it made the whole experience easier. We cannot thank them all enough.
