The price of dying in Scotland

The cheapest place in Scotland to be buried is the Western Isles.

A basic funeral there can be had for £694 – a 2% increase on 2014 prices.

According to Citizens Advice Scotland there is a postcode lottery of charges faced by people in different parts of Scotland.

It claims that the basic cost of burial fees – not including undertaker fees and flowers – is now on average £1,273.

That’s a 10% rise in 12 months.
