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 'Your Ceremony With Tracey Eastwood' 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 Hip Ivy (Located on 171 Ainsworth Road, BURY BL8 2RU, Greater Manchester) or The Flower Shop (Phone number 0161 7631529) typically charge approximately between £90 up to £471 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.
