I do Edexcel History and AQA English Language. I would put History and RE (at least Eduqas RE) on the same difficulty level, and then English Language slightly easier, but it's hard.

RE doesn't have as many essay types as History. There are only two types you need to learn: 20 markers where you dump loads of knowledge and 30 markers where you evaluate an issue.

However, the amount of content in Eduqas RE is insaneeeeee, so much content that my school is changing to AQA RE for the next year. The Religion component is quite easy, reflected in the high grade boundaries. The Philosophy and Ethics papers have much lower grade boundaries because there's so much content and some of it is hard to understand. If you have engaging and effective teachers, the large amount of content will be manageable. If, like my class, your teachers aren't that good and keep changing, you're not in a good position. By the end of Y12, we had only done about 30% of the content. We started having 9 lessons a week instead of 4, and we just about finished, but we're not secure in our knowledge.

So yes there is lots of memorising and writing, but if you have very good teachers, they might make it do-able. I would only recommend if you are confident in teachers, or if you know some of the content already. Here's the spec if you wanna see for yourself (remember you'll only be doing ONE of the religions) - https://www.eduqas.co.uk/media/i4tjifbc/eduqas-a-level-religious-studies-spec-from-2016-e-011020.pdf
