How much does a funeral cost in Gravesend?

The typical cost of funerals in Gravesend typically sits around £2752 with burial constituting 20% and cremation accounting for 80% of the amount of funerals taking place in Gravesend. 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 Artistic Florist (Located on 5 Cross Lane West, GRAVESEND DA11 7PZ, Kent) or Junie's Florist (Phone number 01474 359080) typically charge approximately between £90 up to £463 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 Jessica Knight Bridal Jewellery & Accessories or visiting their store at 7 Commonwealth House, Montreal Road, Gravesend.
