How much does a funeral cost in Gloucester?

The typical cost of funerals in Gloucester typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 19% and cremation accounting for 81% of the amount of funerals taking place in Gloucester. 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 'Weaving Memories' 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 Gloucester Florists (Located on 2B/C Carlton Road, GLOUCESTER GL1 5DY, Gloucestershire) or Plantation Florist (Phone number 01452 332203) typically charge approximately between £83 up to £473 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 Truscott Jewellers & The Goldman Workshop or visiting their store at 1-5 College Court, Gloucester.
