How much does a funeral cost in Folkestone?

The typical cost of funerals in Folkestone typically sits around £2836 with burial constituting 24% and cremation accounting for 76% of the amount of funerals taking place in Folkestone. 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 'Vince Hawkes Rustic Celebrant' 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 Wild For Flowers (Located on 1a Town Walk, Cheriton Place, FOLKESTONE CT20 2AD, Kent) or Stem by Stem (Phone number 01303 252626) typically charge approximately between £99 up to £455 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 Hiraeth Creative or visiting their store at 59 The Old High Street, Folkestone.
