How much does a funeral cost in Halifax?

The typical cost of funerals in Halifax typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 16% and cremation accounting for 84% of the amount of funerals taking place in Halifax. 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 'True To You Celebrancy' 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 Flowers by Jade (Located on 103a Ovenden Road, HALIFAX HX3 5RQ, West Yorkshire) or JK Floral Design (Phone number 01422 351777) typically charge approximately between £76 up to £453 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 Gilly's Beaded Gifts or visiting their store at 2 Kershaw Court,, Luddendenfoot, Halifax.
