Which is more formal 'Yours faithfully' or 'Yours sincerely'?

The former.

It's also less common.

Commonly,the former is more formal,especially when you don't know the name of the recipient.

But the "Dear Mr/Miss/Mrs XXX" and "Yours sincerely" expression is more and more used in the formal business correspondence.

Both are good expressions.
