Funeral costs and payments

Each funeral is different. So costs can vary considerably.

As a rough guideline, a recent survey found that the average funeral in the UK now costs more than £3,000. Most funerals are cremations (77%) at an average cost of £2,500; burials (23%) are more expensive costing over £3,000.

Burial fees: There may be fees for purchasing a new grave, opening or reopening the grave and removing and replacing existing memorials.

There may be a further charge if you wish to purchase the exclusive right of burial (no further burials in that grave without your permission). In many areas, you need to purchase the exclusive right of burial if you want to put up a memorial.
