A choice between the best…
For some a particular Funeral Home will hold significance through an historic connection and their decision will be easy, but for others being faced with death is a new experience, so where should they go?
The phone book and internet listings are full of them, so who do they choose?
Ask family and friends – they’ll likely have a recommendation, or may know someone who does – and call up local Funeral Homes and get a feel for them – ask them questions – and don’t forget to ask for a quote!
Depending on wishes and local charges (London, for example, will be higher), you’ll be looking at:
• Cremation, around £3,500 to £4,000 *
• Burial, around £4,000 to £4,500 *
* estimates, based in 2015
Some Funeral Homes charge more, some offer more of a bespoke service – shop around and settle only when you’ve found value for money.
These people will be looking after your loved one, after all – feel comfortable.
