    Thank you to Rebecca, Josh and all the staff at Pettit's for all your help and support during a difficult time.

  • 5 Patricia Mary Price 20th Jul 2021

    From our first contact to our last meeting after the funeral we were treated with sympathy and sensitivity. The procedure was explained to us in detail, and all options given to us. The result was a funeral my son would have been totally happy with, as I was. In spite of the restrictions in numbers and content imposed by the pandemic, the result was a service both dignified and comforting. My thanks to all those involved Pat Price

  • 5 Ray Noonan 12th Apr 2021

    No loss of a loved one is fun but Pettit's smooth organisation and sensitive approach made the funeral of my late wife as trouble-free and unstressful as possible, while maintaining the appropriate dignity of the occasion. Everything I had asked for was done perfectly and the tactful and friendly support of Pettit's staff at every stage ensured that a day I had dreaded turned out to be one remembered with gratitude. I should add that the nearby florist suggested by Pettit's suppled the most magnificent floral tribute I have ever seen and are similarly to be highly recommended.

    They were so helpful, kind, thoughtful and very approachable. Did an excellent job, offered support. Couldn’t fault them

  • 4 Mary Allanson 30th Mar 2021

    The service from the staff was excellent but I’ve only given it four stars because  there was not a facility for “in memory of” online payments. I think this is a service that should be offered, particularly in this current pandemic.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
