Family Tree Price List

Whether a formal funeral in church followed by burial, a farewell at the crematorium, or an all-day celebratory event, the funeral will be costed in advance and an estimate sent for your approval.

As a general guide, expect a typical cremation to cost around £3,700. Expect a similar amount for burial with the headstone as an additional cost.

N.B. There are as many styles of funeral as there are people, so please talk to us if you want something you don’t see listed here.
