If you are looking to arrange a burial service, there are additional costs you may want to consider, such as the purchase of the burial plot, gravediggers’ fee, and the minister’s or officiant’s fee. Burial costs can vary greatly depending on where you are in the country; whether the burial is to take place in a council-run cemetery, privately owned cemetery or churchyard will also contribute to price differences.
