Funeral costs rise again 'to more than £4,400'

5568496532_0eed9137bb_b.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xThe average cost of a basic funeral has risen by more than 9% in a year in some regions, an insurer has suggested.

The typical cost was now £4,417, up 3.4% on a year ago, but burial fees have led to large rises in some areas, research by SunLife claimed.

Wales (up 9.4%), the Midlands (9.6%), and the South East and East of England (9.2%) saw the biggest increases.
