According to the Money Advice Service, "a funeral arranged in the usual way costs, on average, £3,675."
Funerals normally get left to the last minute. Not the best the time to shop around.
It's a good idea to specify some of your choices in your will so you can help your executors.
We recommend the Money Advice Service's article "How much does a funeral cost?" to help you decide what type of funeral you'd like.
