How much does a funeral cost in Whitby?

The typical cost of funerals in Whitby typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 17% and cremation accounting for 83% of the amount of funerals taking place in Whitby. 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 'Unique Celebrant Ceremonies' 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 The Flower Pot (Located on 18 Baxtergate, WHITBY YO21 1BW, North Yorkshire) or Forever to Hold (Phone number 07957 595 330) typically charge approximately between £78 up to £466 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 Whitby Jet Store or visiting their store at 145 Church Street, Whitby.
