Cremation Price Guide by Region

Approximately 60% of crematoria are council owned and the remainder are predominantly owned by private companies in addition to Dignity that are public listed company on the London Stock Exchange; most Dignity crematoria charge a price higher than the UK average. When you purchase a funeral plan that guarantees payment of the cremation fees the cremation price at the crematorium used will be paid in full. Should you appoint Funeral Plan Market™ as the funeral director to look after the funeral for a person that has passed away our funeral packages include payment of the cremation fees at a set price, this means it does not matter what the regional variation in the cremation price is because we charge a set rate for our packages.
