How much does a funeral cost in Whitstable?

The typical cost of funerals in Whitstable typically sits around £2500 up to £4500 with burial constituting 16% and cremation accounting for 84% of the amount of funerals taking place in Whitstable. 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 Jane at Graham Greener (Located on 27 Harbour Street, WHITSTABLE CT5 1AH, Kent) or Tankerton Flowers (Phone number 01227 770831) typically charge approximately between £87 up to £452 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 Clothes Horse or visiting their store at 39 - 40 Harbour Street, Whitstable.
