East Dunbartonshire comes in fourth with burial fees of £1,811 and cremations costing around £900.
The only other area to charge more is South Lanarkshire with burial fees of £1,833 and cremation at £1,225.
GMB Scotland secretary Harry Donaldson said: “The total average cost once funeral director’s costs and the reception are added comes to £7,000.
“Someone is making a lot of money out of bereavement.”
