How much does an average direct cremation cost in the UK?
According to Sunlife’s 2023 Cost of Dying report, the most affordable funeral in the UK is currently direct cremation, at an average price of £1,511 (depending on the provider), an 8.2% decrease since last year.
Compared to burials, direct cremations are nearly 69% cheaper, and this is largely due to the costly extras such as limousines and wakes etc… not being involved. By having a more simplified and direct funeral service, you can save yourself or loved ones up to £3,283. The most important thing to remember is that although direct cremations are more affordable, it doesn’t mean they are less dignified. It just means that instead of spending thousands on buffets at the wake or flower displays, you can instead source any necessary extras yourself and host a more private memorial that is more befitting to the deceased.
