Fantastic service and lovely people. Had no issues at all and would highly recommend. Offered great flexibility and really went above and beyond what i was expecting during such a difficult time. I very quickly knew i had made the right decision in choosing them!

I can't thank Keith and Jen enough for the help and support they have given me and my family during our tragic time of not only losing our Mother but our Step Father too. Nothing was too much trouble for them even urging us to pick up the phone no matter what time; day or night if there was anything troubling us. The chapel of rest was the most lovely peaceful room and we were happy to have our parents rest there before the funeral. Keith made sure everything we'd asked for after the funeral was brought back and passed on to us. Keith and Jen took a lot of the worry and stress out of what was already a difficult time, even helping us with the obituary which helped us a lot as we'd never been through anything similar before. As a family we will be sure to let everyone know how wonderful they were and will recommend Saint and Forster to anyone who has a difficult time to come. Thank you so much Keith and Jen .

Firstly, you’ve misspelled the name of the deceased. Not a good start. However the attention to detail and their care and kindness could not be bettered. Can confidently recommend them.

    I am so sorry, Volker. I suspect this was an autocorrect, but I should have checked it. Thank you very much for the recommendation. Jenny.

    From our very first conversation, and throughout the arrangements made for my brother Paul's funeral, I found Saint and Forster to be extremely helpful and sensitive. They were very informative, empathetic and were consumate professionals, keen to ensure a high quality and bespoke service. I would have no hesitation in recommending these funeral directors and am very grateful for all their kind help and assistance during this difficult, upsetting time. Thank you for your kindness and support. Much appreciated!

    Keith Munt replied
    Many thanks for your kind words. It was an honour to be able to help you achieve what you wanted for your brother.

    Sensitive and professional service. Keith conducted himself with a great deal of compassion making a very unpleasant situation more bearable. Thank you. 

    Keith Munt replied
    Thank you very much indeed. I am pleased that we were able to be of some help at this difficult time.

    A very professional and personal service. On meeting Kieth and Jenny I knew that I could trust them to do the very best for myself and my family at what was a very vulnerable time. When a slight last minute hiccup occurred to do with my fathers funeral, which was nothing to do with their service, they handled it sensitively, professionally and honestly and went to great lengths to make sure it didn't effect the day. They treated my fathers' remains with the upmost respect at all times. I would highly recommend them over larger, more commercial focused and impersonal funeral services. Thank you Kieth, Jenny and all your staff.

    Keith Munt replied
    Thank you very much, Kathy. It was an honour to be involved with your father's 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.

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.
