Burial or Cremation?

If you are organising a funeral one of the initial choices you will have to make is whether it will be a burial ceremony or a cremation.

In recent years cremation has become more usual, with over 70 percent of the population in Britain choosing it instead of burial. Although cremation is generally considered more convenient, another reason for the decrease in burials is that many graveyards are reaching maximum capacity.

Cremation is usually cheaper than a burial and can be significantly cheaper in urban areas where there is less grave space. Cremation should cost around £400 to £500. Grave digging should cost from £600 to £800, and can cost more in some areas. These costs are for the burial or cremation alone and will not include funeral director's charges, transport, coffins or cremation urns.
