How much does a funeral cost in Sittingbourne?

The typical cost of funerals in Sittingbourne typically sits around £3027 with burial constituting 24% and cremation accounting for 76% of the amount of funerals taking place in Sittingbourne. 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 Flowers & Sparkle (Located on Castle Road, SITTINGBOURNE ME10 3FX, Kent) or Flowers by Beatrice (Phone number 01795 554600) typically charge approximately between £76 up to £475 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 Battrum & Son or visiting their store at 102 High St, Sittingbourne.
