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.

Sarah was just amazing from the first time we met her all the way through to dads funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The kindness and compassion she showed to mum (and my brother and I) was outstanding. ‘Thankyou’ seems inadequate but it is sent with sincere gratitude for Sarah and her team. Thankyou so much.

Sarah and the team were excellent, friendly, approachable yet professional at all times. Having taken into account our requirements they made the experience very personal.

Very impressed with all of Peggy's funeral arrangements from start to finish. Your compassion and complete professionalism was nothing less than first class. A special thanks goes to Sarah and Jenny whose visits to the family home certainly put all at ease at this sad time. Let me not forget the other members of your team who were equally very professional and impressive. On behalf of all Peggy's family, a big thank you.

From the moment I contacted them right up to the day and during my wife's funeral I felt I was being looked after and that there was genuine empathy with my situation and the recent loss of my wife lovely wife Natalie. Mark held my hand through all the procedure and decision making needed to achieve the funeral I wanted. Jenny the celebrant Marks wife was lovely and has a real wonderful talent for understanding your needs. The putting together of the service was so much easier than it could have been. They are a true family business not a franchise like so many these days and I would highly recommend them to my friends and family. Thank you so much for making the day of my wife's funeral so special and memorable everyone who attended thought it was beautifully and gave a true reflection of Natalie's life and those using the webcast were equally impressed. I cannot thank you enough. PAC
