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 go.botanica (Located on Lewes Railway Station Station Road, LEWES BN7 2UP, East Sussex) or Riverside Flowers (Phone number 01273 488820) typically charge approximately between £76 up to £452 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 David Smith Jewellery or visiting their store at Studio 9, Star Brewery, Castle Ditch Lane, Lewes.
