Additional funeral service costs
Along with the funeral director and cremation or burial fees, some people choose to pay for additional services for the ceremony, such as catering, venue hire for the wake, funeral flowers, and additional transport such as limousines. Research has found that these extras can cost up to £2,061*
These extra costs are completely optional and you shouldn’t feel pressured into paying for things that aren’t in your budget. Some people choose to ask friends and family to help – for example, could someone help with flower arrangements or do you know someone who could provide catering? These costs can vary, so it’s worth shopping around to find quotes that fit your budget.
