From our first contact to the final farewell Carlyon Funeral Directors supported and guided the family. Every step was managed professionally and sensitively, and with a personal touch.

Nicola Harper 10th Oct 2021

We were drawn to Carlyon from their excellent webpage. We felt it was far more personal and welcoming than the larger corporate companies and not living in the area was something we were looking for. On making contact with Andrea we immediately felt valued and welcomed. She was compassionate but not over the top and her interaction with us felt totally genuine. Nothing was too much trouble, suggestions were put forward to us to think about, things we hadn't maybe thought about, never pushy or as though we were taking up too much of Andrea's time. Contact with Andrea was always answered promptly whatever the time of day. The funeral went perfectly, every little detail was covered we didn't have to worry about anything. Andrea and her team were absolute professionals in everything they did, it was as though we'd known Andrea for years almost like a family friend. David and the rest of the team on the day were friendly and professional also. Having not had to arrange a funeral before the daunting prospect was made so effortless by Andrea, she took the lead, listening to what we wanted offering advice and letting us decide. We would 100% recommended Carlyon Undertakers to anyone who finds themselves in need of someone to carryout their funeral for their nearest and dearest.

  • 5 John Dodd 28th Sep 2021

    Andrea was excellent in every way she was very professional yet made a rather sombre occasion much easier for us to cope with.

  • 5 David Beard 21st Sep 2021

    Andrea of Carlyon Funeral Directors Was extremely efficient & caring in taking care of our Mother's funeral arrangements. Using top class transport. Nothing seemed to be to much trouble, and the momentous that she gave to Sheila's Grandchildren was very thoughtful indeed. We would recommend her services without hesitation!

  • 5 Paul Christopher 21st Sep 2021

    We couldn't have found anyone to do all the arrangements more compassionately for us, also very reasonably priced. Every little detail was perfect at such a sad time.

  • 5 Diane Goss 21st Sep 2021

    An excellent service, caring and professionalism from start to finish. I would highly recommend Carlyon funeral directors and know that Cliff would be proud that you took care of his funeral

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.
