Although currently more people choose to be cremated rather than buried, burial is still an option for those who wish to be laid to rest in this way. People may be buried in a churchyard or cemetery or on private land if they wish.
Burial is significantly pricier than cremation. A new burial plot will need to be purchased, which costs around £900 – £1500, or, in some circumstances, an existing grave can be reopened.
Currently, around 75% of people in the UK are cremated. Some people may opt to be cremated, then buried in a cremation plot, rather than having their ashes scattered.
A permanent burial plot for ashes costs somewhere around £450. Far & Beyond can provide further information on your options and the potential costs.
