Is cremation more expensive than burial?

Generally the cost of burial is much higher than the fee charged for cremation.

Cremation needs a medical certificate for which fees are payable to the doctors concerned.  These certificates are not required when the death has been referred to and investigated by the coroner (procurator fiscal in Scotland), or when burial is required. Burials also require additional charges as well as those for internment. A number of other fees for grave purchase, memorials and grave maintenance may be incurred.
