How much does a funeral cost?
On average, the cost for a burial is £4,321, whilst the average cost for a cremation is £3,250. There are many things to think about and decide when arranging a funeral. It is often a difficult time for family and friends who are dealing with loss. A funeral is also, to some people’s surprise, a lot more expensive than they thought, often costing thousands of pounds.
Average cost of a funeral
Recent figures show that a funeral using a funeral director costs on average £3,989*.
This cost can vary quite a bit, depending on location and the funeral arrangements. For example, quotes in London can vary as much as £2,315.
Using a funeral director
A funeral director can help make it easier for you to arrange a funeral, giving you time to grieve.
But this is likely to mean a more expensive funeral.
How much is a funeral director?
The funeral director’s fees can be the most expensive part of a funeral, in many cases making up between 50-66% of the costs.
If you use a funeral director, they’ll collect, store, prepare and deliver the body to the cemetery or crematorium.
They’ll also ensure the necessary forms for cremation or burial are completed, and some will also arrange a simple ceremony as part of their fee.
They’ll also provide a coffin, hearse and usually a limousine.
But these items can quickly add up depending on what you pick.
For example, the price of a coffin can be as little as £100 to as much as £10,000.
How to find a funeral director
You shouldn’t just pick the first one you find. Call around and get at least two quotes before you choose one that’s best for you.
You should also consider using a local independent funeral director. They’re usually cheaper than a national chain
A funeral plan through us will take care of all of these challenges and the investment is less than today's average funeral costs and the director is included.
