How much does a funeral cost in Bournemouth?

The typical cost of funerals in Bournemouth typically sits around £3066 with burial constituting 16% and cremation accounting for 84% of the amount of funerals taking place in Bournemouth. However, the actual expense for a family can vary based on specific requirements and choices. For instance, if a family prefers a local celebrant, such as 'Wendy Harrington' found on thecelebrantdirectory.co.uk, rather than a minister or pastor, the cost would be higher.

When calculating the overall expenses of a funeral, it is important to take into account the additional cost of funeral flowers. Local florists like Flowers at 166 (Located on 166 Charminster Road, BOURNEMOUTH BH8 8UX, Dorset) or By Arrangement (Phone number 01202 762262) typically charge approximately between £82 up to £470 for funeral flower arrangements.

Even though funeral jewellery, like a cremation necklace, is not typically considered a direct expense of a funeral, it does add to the overall cost. To obtain pricing information about funeral jewellery, we suggest reaching out to Pandora or visiting their store at 27-31 Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth.
