First Class help and support from Fiona in Spondon

Miss Gillian Gratton 29th Oct 2018

Fiona made the whole process very easy and comforting at a very sensitive time. Her easygoing nature helped make dealing with my bereavement easier by keeping n regular contact as I was based in Coventry. The day of the funeral was efficiently dealt with by Kevin and the bearers. I want to pass on my thanks to everyone 

Kathrine Bambridge 22nd Oct 2018

I was delighted with the courtesy and respect accorded to me and could not have felt Roger was in better hands. On the day of the funeral and throughout they went above and beyond to make everything perfect. THANKS TO ALL

    Fiona Hall, at the Spondon office, who organised my dad’s funeral, is quite brilliant. She struck the right note with us from the moment we arrived, therefore making a traumatic and difficult process straightforward.   On the day itself, the drivers were superb: friendly, precise with their timing.

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.
