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 'Your Ceremony With Tracey Eastwood' 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 Flower Emporium (Located on 9 Moorside Road, Heaton Moor, STOCKPORT SK4 4DT, Greater Manchester) typically charge approximately between £86 up to £461 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.
