The cost of a basic funeral, which makes up 46% of the total Cost of Dying (up from 44% in 2016), has risen by 4.7% from £3,897 in 2016 to £4,078 in 2017. This figure is calculated by taking the combined average cost of cremations and burials; the average cost of a burial in 2017 is £4,561, which is almost £1,000 (£965) more than the average cost of a cremation – £3,596. The cost of a burial has risen by 4.7% in the past year and by 116% since SunLife began tracking costs in 2004. The cost of a religious burial is even higher. The average is £4,715 which is more than two and a half times what it cost in 2004.
