How Much Does A Funeral Cost?

At Woodside we believe everyone has the right to a dignified funeral. Our aim is to keep the cost of a funeral as low as possible giving you the choice to do more for your loved ones. We’re here to guide and support you every step of the way.

Our caring and dedicated team provide the highest quality professional funeral services.  All our funerals include:

  • taking your loved one into care
  • liaising with local authorities on your behalf
  • providing support for planning the funeral
  • taking care of all the legal aspects including documentation
  • a private viewing

Additional costs for services provided by others

There are some additional 3rd party costs outside our control that you will need to take into consideration. These can include:

  • Funeral Flowers
  • Humanist, Priest or Officiant’s fee
  • Fee for Burial or interment 
  • Gravedigger fees
  • Cremation fees
  • Fees for cremation documents
  • Purchase of a grave/burial plot
  • Musicians fees such as cantors or pipers
  • Memorial headstones
  • Fees to scatter ashes

We can advise on average costs for the above services. We recommend that you keep at least an additional £700 to £1400 aside over the cost of these services depending on whether it is cremation or burial. If your family doesn’t already have a lair then it could be more.

You may want to include additional services such as limousines for your family, or printed order of service for the ceremony. We can provide these at very competitive prices should you desire. Our experienced team will guide you through this process ensuring you get the perfect funeral for your loved one, at the highest quality service and the best possible price.

Location

Location costs vary significantly across Scotland, therefore, the price you pay could be higher or lower depending on where you make your funeral arrangements. According to costs reported in the Royal London (2017) ‘A False Dawn’ report and the Sunlife (2017) ‘Cost of Dying’ report, the average cost of a funeral in Scotland in 2017 was over £3000.
