How much does a funeral cost in Saffron Walden?

The typical cost of funerals in Saffron Walden typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 22% and cremation accounting for 78% of the amount of funerals taking place in Saffron Walden. 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 Amy Louise Floral Design (Located on 31 High Street, SAFFRON WALDEN CB10 1AT, Essex) or The Flower Shop (Phone number 01799 522015) typically charge approximately between £94 up to £465 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 The Corner Cupboard Saffron Walden or visiting their store at 17 King Street, Saffron Walden.
