I was very pleased with the arrangements for John's funeral it was excellent and carried out in a very sensitive way. William was so sensitive to our needs and talked us through everything we needed to know. Myself and my family would like to thank you all very much for what you did for us.

William and the team did an amazing personal service for Margaret. Nothing was to much trouble. I would highly recommend them to anyone.I thank them all for their dedication and care.

Christine Powell 8th Jul 2021

From the moment I met William I was impressed with his professionalism but also his compassion and kindness. His preparation for my son's cremation was meticulous he covered every minute detail. The service itself was beautiful a fitting tribute to my son's life. He was the celebrant and read the poems and eulogy with such feeling. The whole of the Bespoke team were wonderfully kind and professional and helped to make an awful period of my life a little easier.

    The whole experience from the first phone call was both extremely efficient and compassionate. William came to see Peter at home to make the arrangements, and ensured everything was done to make what can be an extremely difficult time much easier.

    From start to finish Bespoke Funeral Care were excellent. William and his team were absolutely brilliant we knew our father was in good hands and would be cared for from start to finish. Cannot put into words how the love and support they gave us through the whole process helped us through this sad time. From the initial meeting through to the final service William showed that he truly cared and the professionalism was exemplarily. William ensured that the funeral went without a hitch his eulogy was spot on and delivered perfectly. Their attention to detail, was above and beyond. A big thank you from all of the family we were truly blessed.

    Bespoke Funeral Care gave a beautiful send off for our pam. William in particular has been very warm, welcoming and helpful, always been just a email away if we needed anything or any questions we needed answering. It really does make a huge difference when you get a wonderful service like this especially at a very difficult time for familys. Thankyou Bespoke Funeral Care ❤

  • 5 Marie Redfearn 21st Mar 2021

    From the first phone call we were dealt with in not only in an empathetic way, but in a very individual & personal way. We felt like we were the only people in the area to be experiencing such trauma and that Bespoke couldn't have had any other work! Obviously not true, but that's how important to them they made us feel. They offered understanding, reassurance and most earnest an abundance of support. The service we received was second to none and they listened to our every wish, ensuring it was orchestrated without any stress or problems. Having never had to deal with such an ordeal before, and under Covid conditions we received an absolutely excellent service from Bespoke and could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you all, especially Will, and the hearse guys (please forgive me whose names escape me now) who were so respectful and thoughtful throughout xx A day to remember well...

  • 5 Claire Ward 15th Feb 2021

    Myself, Ian's family and friends couldn't have asked for a better send off for Ian. From the moment William came to see me to talk about Ian's funeral to the moment we said goodbye. William catered to every single little detail with no fuss, no matter how many times I changed my mind on something! The staff were caring, considerate and friendly. I would highly recommend Bespoke Funeral 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.
