Prices will vary from area to area, it will also depend on whether you are having it done with lime mortar or not - this is the material it would have originally have been built with and allows the building to breathe, but is a lot more expensive than cement.
There is no cement in lime mortar, and anyone who uses it on older properties you should run a mile from.
Your best bet is post the job on the site and get a few local tradesman used to dealing with older properties round to quote.
