Andrew Grey have handled a few family funerals for us and the service has always been excellent  This time circumstances dictated that events were changing on a daily basis and it really was unknown territory for everyone. Full marks to Kay for her professionalism and excellent service in helping us all through this difficult time. Thanks to you all

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. Kay directed everything from initial details to conducting Mams funeral and helped us all immensely on a very difficult day. Mam was immaculate at the chapel of rest and we feel we gave her the dignified respectful service she deserved. Thank you to all the team from the Renshaw family x

    All I can say is that the care we were given by your staff, especially Kay was perfect.  We we dealt with promptly and with such care and respect.  Kay was especially supportive with Johns 12 year old grandson who found it very overwhelming.  The funeral service was a wonderful thanksgiving as well as a touching farewell to an amazing man.  Thanks just isn’t enough.

    I want to express our heartfelt thanks to Andrew Grey and his staff for all they did for my Mam and the family. They are so thoughtful and caring and at the same time most professional. I would have no hesitation in speaking highly of Andrew and recommend his services. At this time of bereavement it is comforting to know you have someone who looks after your loved one and also those left behind.

    Absolutely fantastic! we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Ben was amazing!  When I saw him walking my fabulous Dad out the street it was the most amazing thing I’ve seen, it was as though he new my dad and he would have been so proud as much as we were. Everyone of you did an amazing job!  Will never forget the service we have had and will certainly be recommending you to all our family and friends.  Thanks again! Love from all our family. XX

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.
