How much does a funeral cost?

I believe that a good funeral does not have to be an expensive funeral. It will be one that will leave you feeling proud you did your best for your loved one. I promise that an affordable funeral will never feel second-best. It is a balance of giving each family what they need and keeping costs as low as possible. The cost of funerals have risen more that 112% over the last 13 years, this is putting pressure on families at a time when they are vulnerable. All the funerals I carry out are dignified, and everyone receives the highest of standards and care. It is for this reason I want to be clear about the cost of a funeral and have therefore set out below prices of the most popular options. For cremations they include my professional costs and the third party fees (sometimes known as disbursements) which are paid on your behalf.  You are free to add your own wishes to the packages these are to give you an idea of price.   Nick Jago
