How much does a funeral cost?
These days a typical funeral using a funeral director costs around £3,600. However, you can pay much more or less than this, depending on how you want to remember the person who’s died, what you can organise yourself and how much you can afford to pay.

Funeral cost inflation has averaged about 7% over the last 10 years. According to the Mintel report of September 2012, the average cost today of a funeral is in excess of £3,284. It is estimated that the average funeral, assuming 7% inflation, will cost over £6,900 by 2023, and £13,600 by 2033.
