    Yes that is a huge range but there are very good reasons for it The cost of an individual funeral will be determined by the family s wishes In cases where the deceased has made prearrangements then those prior wishes will also need to be considered Funerals are very personal things The only way the cost can be properly assessed is in a face to face interview with an experienced Funeral Director so that all the options can be explained and understood The Funeral Director can demonstrate what is involved and clearly explain your choices So what things influence cost Some of the things that determine cost are Whether the funeral involves a cremation or a burial If it is a burial whether it is below ground or above ground in a vault The choice of coffin in terms of materials used and the extent of workmanship The extent of floral tributes The length style and number of death and funeral notices placed in newspapers Charges made by celebrants and the clergy Facility charges made by operators of crematoria and cemeteries The extent of catering for post funeral gatherings The quality of Funeral Director facilities including things like hearses mortuary chapel and viewing facilities The level of Funeral Director service offered Remember a funeral is a combination of many services each with an influence on cost What you need to do The only way to make an informed decision about the combination of services that is right for you is by meeting with a Funeral Director who will outline the options and explain the detail If your preference is a low cost funeral conducted with simplicity and elegance we are happy to facilitate that for you If you wish to arrange a more involved funeral catering to very large numbers
