How much does a funeral cost in Plymouth?

The typical cost of funerals in Plymouth typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 15% and cremation accounting for 85% of the amount of funerals taking place in Plymouth. 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 'Victoria Graham' 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 Lily Lovedays (Located on 67 High Street (Buckwell Street), The Barbican, PLYMOUTH PL1 2AW, Devon) or The Flower Bar (Phone number 01752 223917) typically charge approximately between £91 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 Drakes Jewellers or visiting their store at Drake Circus Shopping Centre, 1 Charles Street, Plymouth.
