How much does a funeral cost in Guildford?

The typical cost of funerals in Guildford typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 20% and cremation accounting for 80% of the amount of funerals taking place in Guildford. 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 Jean's Florist (Located on 109 Aldershot Road, GUILDFORD GU2 8BE, Surrey) or The Chelsea Flower Shop (Phone number 01483 452015) typically charge approximately between £87 up to £451 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 Maunder Watch Co or visiting their store at 56 North Street, Guildford.
