Funeral Pricing 

We subscribe to the National Federation of Funeral Directors  
FAIR PRICE CHARTER 
For most funeral companies the average cost of a cremation is in the region of £3200 and a burial £4100. These prices can vary depending on the requirements of the family, such as limousines, horse and carriage, floral tributes, type of coffin, church service and also the pricing policy of each individual funeral company. 
 
At Wessex Funeral Services we fully understand that this can become very expensive and therefore offer a dignified but affordable service to keep costs at a minimum. 
 
We as members of The Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, The National Federation of Funeral Directors and as an Independent Family run business we offer three dignified and affordable cremation packages for those with a restricted budget. 
 
These packages are designed to make the arranging of the service as easy as possible at this difficult time. We can also tailor the service to meet with any specific requirements and costs.
