What is the average cost of a funeral in your area?

The cost of putting our loved ones to rest is rapidly increasing, currently rising faster than inflation. In the last year alone, the cost of a cremation rose by 10%, and the cost of a burial by 4%.¹

With these statistics in mind, we’ve created a funeral tracker tool that shows the average cost of burials and cremations across the UK, how these costs differ depending where you are, and how these prices could rise in the next few years.

From the drop down menu below, select your desired county and see how much the average funeral costs now, and what it might in the future.
