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 'Unique Ceremonies, Your Way' found on, 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 Quince (Located on 2 Nile Street, BRIGHTON BN1 1HW, East Sussex) or go.botanica (Phone number 01273 327722) typically charge approximately between £80 up to £469 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 Derek Le-Warde Jewellers or visiting their store at 43 Meeting House lane, Brighton.
