How much does a funeral cost? As an independent consumer advocate, we believe that bereaved families should not be exploited at their time of grief. That’s why we created eziFunerals. We understand that having to organise a funeral and speak to different funeral companies can be very daunting at a time when we are emotionally and financially vulnerable. It’s very important that people get fair, open and transparent prices before speaking with a funeral director. Funerals can be a complex undertaking, and you should consider all your options without the pressure of a sales focused environment.
Compare funeral costs near you
The cost of a funeral can vary significantly depending on which funeral director you use and the type of services you choose. Different funeral directors can charge different amounts for the same service. So it pays to do your homework! Don’t feel pressured to go with the first funeral director you see or the one everyone you know used. Although, it may be emotionally difficult for you to ‘shop around’ for funeral services, it makes sense that you should use the same techniques you use with any other major purchase.
