Basic Funeral Option

The total cost of the basic funeral option from Peace Funerals is £945

Please note:

A funeral can be either a burial or a cremation. The price of Peace Funerals 's basic funeral option does not include cemetery or crematoria fees, also known as 'disbursements', which vary widely across the country.

If you're having a burial you can expect cemetery and grave preparation fees to be between £500 and £20,000.

If you're having a cremation you can expect crematoria fees to be between £500 and £800. Two doctors' signatures are required for cremations (unless the coroner is involved) and these cost £152.

These costs will be in addition to the basic funeral cost quoted above.

Peace Funerals says about their basic funeral option:

If you choose our Basic Cremation package you take responsibility for carrying out certain tasks. They are:

Ensuring that we receive safely, at our Sheffield premises, the green form that you will be given by the registrar and that you sign the two other forms that are required before the cremation can go ahead.

Organising any funeral ceremony that is taking place with the minister / celebrant directly. (We will help you to find an appropriate minister or celebrant.) 

And, if you have selected the 'washing and dressing' option, arranging for any clothes to be worn to be delivered to our Sheffield premises.
