From the very first contact I made, to the grave marker that went up for my Dad last week, Chris, Angela and Danny have all been absolutely amazing. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Our wishes were absolutely respected and there was never any pressure put on us to make decisions quickly. I've never been involved in organising a funeral before, so for my first experience with funeral directors to be taking the lead in organising my Dad's funeral was pretty overwhelming. Angela made it so easy though. Brilliant communication, reassurance, and an appreciation of my dark sense of humour :-) It's not something anyone ever wants to think about but I couldn't recommend Murray's highly enough. They've been absolute superstars and I can thank them enough for everything they've done.

    Professional, supportive and thoughtful. Funeral arrangements by phone in these difficult times is not easy, Sue was there for us at anytime we needed a question answered the support was amazing. When phoning the office the staff were outstanding and helpful. Staff that were at the funeral ensured safety for all adhering to social distance guidelines at all times.

  • 5 Julie Russell 2nd Mar 2020

  • 5 Alice Zammit-Maempel 25th Feb 2020

    After the sad and unexpected loss of my mother, I wouldn’t have known where to start. Sue and the Murray’s team went above and beyond. They handled everything professionally, sympathetically with great attention to detail. I cannot thank Sue, Dave and Danny enough and we are all truly grateful for your help and support on the day. Alice, Joe, Fran, Max and Jenna

  • 5 Sheila Napier 21st Feb 2020

  • 5 Melissa Palfreyman 22nd Dec 2019

    All were kind, thoughtful, considerate and most importantly helpful, especially Sue and Danny. Guiding us through the process at a most difficult time, giving us time to think things through in order the right decision could be made. Thank you.

  • 5 Delia O'Rourke 17th Dec 2019

    Thank you for your compassionate, timely and professional service. We couldn't have asked for more during such a tumultuous for our family. It's been a great comfort knowing our mother was so well looked after by you and your lovely team.

  • 5 Lynne Bower 2nd Dec 2019

    I cannot thank Murray’s enough: from the moment Peter passed away, in my absence, they cared for him. On my return, one single meeting with Angela and the weight of the world was taken from my shoulders.  Professional, knowledgeable, understanding and kind.  She liaised with the Vicar, two separate Churches and ensured everyone was “singing from the same hymn sheet” - pun intended! Sadly she was ill on the day, but Barry then took over and the funeral of a much loved cousin went without a hitch. A company to be relied on when you need it the most.  Thank you.

  • 5 David Reeves 12th Nov 2019

    I have nothing but the utmost praise for the professionalism of Angela and her team at Findern. The overall care and attention to detail was first class and I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Murray’s as funeral arrangers to any bereaved family requiring the highest level of support in times of need. Faultless.

  • 5 Katrina Harding 20th Oct 2019

    Truly wonderful and caring, guiding my family and I through a difficult time with a kind touch x

  • 5 Martin Barke 12th Oct 2019

    The organisation, kindness and professionalism provided both after her death, on the day of my mother's funeral and afterwards, were in my eyes second to none. What, on the face of it could have been a time full of sadness and difficult to get through, actually turned out to be far from it. The assistance and guidance provided by Murrays Independent Funeral Directors made the whole process more bearable for myself and my family. I would have absolutely no problem in recommending Murrays Independent Funeral Directors to anyone else should they require their professional services

  • 5 John Weil 1st Oct 2019

    The team at Murrays were absolutely first class. All arrangements were planned and executed brilliantly, without a hitch. They made a difficult time so easy for us and we could not rate them more highly. We would recommend Murrays to anyone.

  • 5 Alex Wheatley 19th Aug 2019

    Professional, Caring and willing to do whatever it takes to put the family at ease.

  • 5 Mary Paley 12th Jul 2019

  • 5 Ian & Elaine Mellor 8th Jul 2019

    Thankyou for your kindness and helpfullness it made it so much easier for us on the day.

  • 5 Philip Neville 5th Jul 2019

    The service we received was exceptional from day one, it was like having a friend hold your hand to guide you. Sue visited us at the family home and immediately made us feel reassured and explained everything in detail without bombarding us with information. The service itself was everything we hoped for, Angela and her staff were extremely professional during the service. I would thoroughly recommend using them at what is an extremely sad and worrying time.

    I can recommend Murray’s funeral directors with absolute confidence. Sue was our point of call throughout the entire process, she is incredibly professional whilst being helpful, kind,supportive but most importantly genuine, she was very accommodating and able to make a very difficult time manageable. With Sue’s help and guidance our mum had the perfect funeral and we are eternally grateful to Sue and the team at Murray’s. Thank you  Pat Duffy, Marie Mc Girr and family 

  • 5 Ann Barlow 6th Oct 2018

    Trying to organise a funeral is not something one wants to do but Sue and her team at Murray's made it a truly personal experience.  I couldn't recommend Murray's highly enough. Every detail and everything I asked for was achieved.  Her own recommendations were perfect. Thank you Sue and all your team for your dedication, courtesy  and care. 

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.
