Funeral costs explained

Following the Competition and Market Authority’s (CMA) market investigation into the funeral sector it is compulsory that every funeral director has a Standard Price List.
The price list should be available on their website, in the window of their branch, and available to be taken away for reflection.

The Standard Price List should enable you to compare funeral directors on a like-for-like basis based on the CMA’s attended funeral service and unattended funeral service specifications.

Standardised Price List

All funeral directors are legally required to publish this Price List for a standardised set of products and services to help you think through your options and make choices, and to let you compare prices between different funeral directors.
