How Much Do Funerals Cost?

If you have to arrange a funeral for the first time, it can be difficult to know exactly what makes up the funeral costs.

Your funeral director will meet you at home or at their premises to make arrangements for the hearse, the coffin, disbursement, the vicar, the crematorium and liaise with the doctor as required.

Spencer & Peyton is a family-run business, working across Basingstoke & Hook, helping clients to keep funeral costs down. We provide a friendly, transparent and compassionate service, taking the weight from your shoulders.

A funeral director can lessen the stress involved in arranging a funeral, taking care of masonry and floral arrangements amongst other things whilst also offering emotional support, advice and guidance during a difficult time.

You should expect to pay fees to the minister of the service, the doctor and the crematorium itself.

The funeral cost depends on your budget and the choices you make. Usually, you will need to take the following into consideration:

  • Obituary notice
  • Flower arrangements
  • Limousine hire etc.
  • Catering
  • Stonemasonry

At Spencer & Peyton we have five dedicated stonemasons and three talented florists, enabling us to provide bespoke floral arrangements, headstones and monuments across Basingstoke and Hook.

We offer a comprehensive package for £1880.00 which includes all necessary professional services such as:

  • Advice
  • Documentation
  • Collecting the deceased (within a 10 mile radius)
  • Dressing
  • Use of the chapel of rest
  • Use of hearse
  • Provision of a standard coffin
  • The funeral director’s attendance at the funeral

By working with a funeral director you can be sure that everything is taken care of by experienced professionals who are practised in offering all the required services. Very few arrange their own funerals; many prefer to leave the responsibility to an experienced professional.
