There is no doubt that funeral flowers convey a thousand words, but this year has seen a serious rise in the cost of flowers – especially the base flower used for many named tributes – the humble chrysanthemum.

As a result each floral letter costs around £65 – making MUM a cost of around £200.

That is a LOT of money to find on top of rising funeral costs.

Solution? Why not hire flowers instead?
