Cost of burials in Poland

Hi

Hoping to get some advice. My gran passed away and the time has come to finalise her grave. I've been ringing around for quotes. Apparently the standard price is between 7-8000 zlots.

I know someone who paid 4,500 zlots.

Does anyone have any experience in these matters?

Thanks so much.

All depends what you want to spend.

Exactly. A simple casket costs 1500 PLN, while the sophisticated one - twice as much.

between 7-8000 zlots.

That`s a state of the art funeral.

Thanks for the advice. Sorry, I should have made my post a but clearer. Gran - may she rest in peace - already buried in the casket. Just need to sort out her grave site. We want something decent.. but 7-8K for a bit of stone seems a bit too much

I would say this price is average. 17 years ago I paid for a standard tombstone and it cost me 3.5 K. I suppose prices have gone up since then.

Cheers Pawian.

FYI - Costs have gone up by approx 30% due to supply issues connected with corona.

That`s capitalism - if there is an increased demand for goods or services, prices go up.

Agreed.
But we have not yet found a system, that for all it's faults, works better.
