Jennifer Robinson 31st Jan 2021

Bernard and Dianne did a fantastic job they treated us like family. They provided guidance but allowed us to do things just as we wanted. Despite COVID restrictions we had the funeral my Dad had wished for and you can’t ask for more than that. Only having immediate family made it a very special occasion. My mum, sister and I can’t thank you enough.

    An amazing job done by Bernard and Dianne all staff are very kind and thoughtful. It was a difficult time with covid but they looked after me through every stage.If you need them the phone is answered in seconds. I couldn't have wished for any one else to take care of Mother they did. They are the best ever. THANK YOU .Bernard Kenny and Daughter.

  • 5 Joyce Morton 7th Jan 2021

    Mr Kenny and Ms Kenny could not have been more helpful, compassionate and thoughtful if they’d tried.  I was extremely impressed with their professionalism and their help with the service, from the first phone call to the last they were always courteous and polite.  Thank you, you made a hard enough situation in more difficult times run so smoothly, it was more than very much appreciated.

  • 5 Anne Gilman 6th Jan 2021

    Mr Kenney and his daughter both went the extra mile to ensure that my mothers funeral was the best that she could have within the Covid Rules. On the day of her funeral,despite heavy snowfall and blocked roads Mr Kenny ensured that my mother arrived at Burbage Church on time together with a replacement vicar as the original vicar was stuck in   Tideswell. Mr Kenny has many years of experience in his profession and we have been very grateful to him and his daughter for their  guidance and regular updates from the moment we first contact him. 

  • 5 Judith Pickering 5th Jan 2021

  • 4 Ruth Boundy 5th Jan 2021

    Very friendly, sensitive  and approachable staff. Staff took a lot of stress out of organising Phil’s service. 

  • 5 Margaret Holford 5th Jan 2021

    Simply put, Bernard and Diane made a really difficult time bearable. Not only were we having to cope with the death of someone we loved, we were having to do so through the added dangers of a COVID-19 epidemic. As a family, we have nothing but praise for the care and concern shown to us by every member of the team. We will be forever grateful.

  • 5 Michael Lawton 5th Jan 2021

    Bernard and Dianne gave a very Kind, careing service. A familly firm, nothing was too much trouble. We've used them twice, and would'nt think of not doing so in the future. Oh, and the prices were very fair as well

  • 5 Melanie Royle 4th Jan 2021

    Very thoughtful and caring attention to detail.  Discussed all aspects of the arrangements with me  in a thoughtful and considerate way. 

  • 5 Doris Higginbotham 4th Jan 2021

    Both Bernard and his daughter were very caring and helpful all through the process. My husband died in May at the height of the pandemic and we were only allowed 9 in the crematorium. It wasn't very pleasant, but they had explained everything clearly to me beforehand which was a very great help. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

  • 5 Marjorie Faragher 3rd Jan 2021

    Very professional, thoughtful and attentive to every detail. Nothing was too much trouble.  We could not have asked for more and are so very grateful for such an individual service and burial.  During such difficult times (covid) we expected things to be disrupted but every hurdle was dealt with by Dianne to ensure our family didn’t encounter any more upset.

  • 5 Catherine Large 3rd Jan 2021

    I would like to say a big thank you to Bernard and Dianne for all the arrangements you made for me and my family and the excellent service you both provided and for being kind,helpful and considerate at such a sad time .

  • 5 Michael Barton 3rd Jan 2021

    I have had to deal with two deaths in late 2018 and one in late 2019 and more recently another in March 2020 at the first lockdown due to the pandemic. There is nobody else I would call in the High Peak to deal with arrangements and trust more so than Bernard, Dianne and Sandra. It was important to me that my late relatives were respected and treated with dignity and they were. Nothing was too much trouble and there were no unexpected add-on fees. In fact, they went one better than that by not charging me to inter my late mother's cremated remains in the churchyard a few months after the event. The delay being me getting permission from the church. Attention to detail was first class, from the vehicle cleanliness, smart dress of all those who drove or were pall bearers and the little details like floral arrangements. And no trouble or inconvenience on their part for calls out of hours at just after midnight or in the early morning or turning up on their premises early on a Sunday morning. Only a welcome and a cup of tea. Lovely family business and when my time comes I will be reassured I am in safe and trusted hands on my final journey.

  • 5 Tim Hewitt 3rd Jan 2021

    An excellent service at a really difficult time. 

  • 4 Julie Drabble 3rd Jan 2021

    Excellent considering we were under the COVID restrictions 

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.
