From the initial meeting with Ben the care and service shown to our family has been exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for Ben and he regularly checked on my mam to make sure everything was as she required. He also selected Mark Black as our celebrant who was an amazing choice and who made us feel like he knew my dad. I can't praise the whole service enough and would definitely recommend Andrew Grey to anyone

  • 5 Ann Mosley 31st Mar 2020

    Having previously enlisted the professional  services of Ben & his team at Andrew Grey for my late Father’s Funeral, I was more than happy to utilise their services again for my late Mother. In light of very difficult circumstances due to the current social distancing restrictions they performed a both caring and highly professional service. Many thanks again. Ann Mosley , Janet Selby and family.

    Andrews services were unfortunately required again but as always provided a totally professional and personal service from start to finish.

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.

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?
