  • 5 Ann Thompson 22nd Feb 2021

    Murray’s went above and beyond for for my family from start to finish. My mother’s funeral was fit for a queen, which is what she was to us.  We will never use any other funeral directors. Thank you so much for all you did. 

  • 5 Audrey Rowley 4th Jan 2021

    An amazing service delivered by a compassionate, caring team. Death of a relative is an emotional time, having Danny and the team helping you through the maize of issues is an awesome relief and their help gave us all time to remember dad, comfortable in the knowledge everything was being smoothly dealt with........a truly massive THANK YOU to all involved

  • 5 Joan Linder 22nd Nov 2020

  • 5 Amanda Andrew 13th Oct 2020

    I would highly recommend the service it is impeccable.

  • 5 Anna Keogh 2nd Oct 2020

    We can’t thank them enough for the care and respect they showed our mother and the support and patience they had for our family. They made a difficult time much more bearable.

  • 5 Ellie Appleby 13th Sep 2020

    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.

  • 5 Nicola Cullen 25th Jul 2020

    Very professional, very caring and explained everything thoroughly to us. We could not of asked for more from Sue & Danny. Thank you for making this sad time more bearable. 

    David Barke replied
    Nicola, you were a lovely family to help and guide. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sue x

  • 5 Margaret Peasgood 2nd May 2020

    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

    Fantastic service from start to finish . Very personalised . 

  • 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

    Gave me excellent support and followed my wishes exactly.

  • 5 Jackie Bentley 27th Jan 2020

    First rate service provided by Sue, thought of everything, giving great support during this difficult time. Would definitely recommend their services.

  • 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

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.
