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.

Andrew, Kay, Ben, Gillian, Liam & the Drivers  delivered a professional, compassionate & supportive service at such a difficult time. As a family we felt the difficulty of arranging a funeral was taken away by their expertise. Thank you all, you did my Mam proud xx

My farther passed away recently and our family were absolutely devastated, Andrew Grey and colleges were amazing throughout. They helped us through every step of the way. Andrew and all of his colleagues, Kay and each one of them made sure every effort was made to make sure our farther had everything he needed and made us feel our father's funeral and everything within the arrangements were done and perfect for all of our family and our farther. Andrew is not just an ordinary funeral director, Andrew, Gillian, Kay and all of the colleges working along side of Andrew are truly exceptional people. I would go as far to say and I speak for all of my family they make us feel like they are a part of our family. Thank you to Andrew Grey and for all of the colleges working with Andrew we know our farther was laid to rest with all of our fathers wishes and with the warmth and love also

From the start the staff were caring and supportive, with their help we got the funeral our mum would have approved of. Nothing was any trouble to them and I got a phone call every other day asking if I was OK and did I need anything else doing. My thanks to a Andrew and the staff especially Ben for all of the help The Clish Family

We used Andrew Grey for our mams funeral on 13th November 2020. From the very beginning we found Kay to be very professional and helpful in every aspect. Kay answered any questions we had and arranged everything to our specifications. On the day of the funeral Kay kept us updated to ensure everything went smoothly on what was a very difficult time for us as a family.
