The support offered by Barbara was outstanding. She undertook my mum’s funeral 3 years ago and to have continuity was fantastic. She dealt with a difficult day for us perfectly

    The whole process, from initial contact with funeral director right through to the actual cremation was carried out in a professional, caring and friendly manner. Can't thank Consett staff and Funeral Director, Barbara, enough.

    Just wonderful thank you so much Barbara and Claire. A very professional job and extremely sympathetic. Couldn't of asked for anything better. Thank you. Julie.

  • 3 William Allison 29th Dec 2021

    My score of average refers to confusion with music which was rectified only when I asked to confirm the arrangements the day before and the paperwork had been printed off incorrectly. The celebrant was excellent on the day but again had I not confirmed the reading the day before we would have potentially had the wrong poem read out. Staff at the branch especially Claire answering the phones were professional and sympathetic .

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.
