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.

Sam and MacKenzie could not do enough for my mom and I during a very sad time for our family. They were kind, considerate and gave very good advice, pointing us in the right direction during the whole process of arranging dad's funeral. We would thoroughly recommend Taylor's to anyone sadly going through this process.

My husband and I are so glad we chose Taylor's to conduct my mother's funeral, which we arranged by telephone and email from our home in Wales. Mackenzie helped us at every stage in a kind, calm and patient way and always quickly came up with a solution to any query or request we made. She recommended a florist and bagpiper which we had asked for and they were both excellent. Sam was also extremely kind and helpful, even visiting my sister at home for her to complete a form necessary for my mother's burial. On the day of the funeral, the staff were punctual, efficient and courteous. We both felt the funeral could not have been handled better and would strongly recommend anyone needing a funeral director in the area to contact Taylor's.

Professional and caring service. They kept me informed at every stage of the arrangements. I cannot thank them enough for the support they provided at a particularly difficult time. If you want a professional and caring service then I would recommend Taylor's Independent Family Funeral Directors.
