How much does a funeral cost in Sevenoaks?

The typical cost of funerals in Sevenoaks typically sits around £2637 with burial constituting 19% and cremation accounting for 81% of the amount of funerals taking place in Sevenoaks. 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 The Sevenoaks Florist (Located on 122 St.Johns Hill, SEVENOAKS TN13 3PD, Kent) or Flower and Glory (Phone number 01732 743419) typically charge approximately between £84 up to £462 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 JULEO JEWELLERY or visiting their store at 137b High Street, Sevenoaks.
