This survey has misspelled my father's surname - thankfully the service that Christophers provided was of a much higher quality

Jane Allen 10th Feb 2021

At an extremely difficult time I found Tom to be incredibly helpful. Any advice given was in a quiet, confident and caring manner. He always went at my pace as we prepared for Frank's funeral. The help he provided before the funeral service was just at the right tempo and not overpowering - it gave me time to think about the forthcoming Service, while at the same time trying to adjust to what had happened. His quiet presence on the day was also reassuring. I can't thank Tom and his team enough for getting me through the most challenging day of my life.

Christopher's family Funerals were very professional in all aspects of my mum's funeral arrangements. The team were all very helpful and sincere in dealing with my requests and no item was too much trouble, their attention to detail was first rate. I would recommend anyone to consider Christopher's Family Funerals, I felt they made a very difficult time a lot easier to bear for all our family.

    Perfect help from start to finish!

  • 5 Robert Hendy 8th Feb 2021

    The service we got from Tom Meek was excellent

  • 5 Sandra Perraton 8th Feb 2021

    I cannot speak highly enough about the caring and efficient service that I received. Losing some-one is always a sad and difficult time but it was made so much easier with the help of Christophers' I will have no hesitation in recommending Christophers' in the future. Sandie Perraton

    From the moment I contacted Christopher’s Family Funerals, Damien dealt with everything in a sensitive and a highly professional manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending their Services.

  • 5 Julia Tapper 13th Jan 2021

    The service provided by Tom and his team at Christophers was first class from collecting my mother in the evening through to the service itself. Their approach was compassionate, informative, prompt, thorough and professional and nothing was too much trouble. Tom met us early on, so that we were made aware of everything that was included in the funeral plan, what options were available to us within Covid restrictions and what things we needed to do. This contrasted with our father's funeral, where we organised and paid for the Order of Service, music and flowers, not realising that the funeral director could do them within the funeral plan.

    A very caring and professional service conducted by Jo for which our family will always be grateful

    Tom Meek replied
    Dear Riccardo, Thank you for your lovely words. It was an honour to look after you all and to help you arrange a beautiful 'goodbye' for Brenda. My very best wishes to you and your family, Jo

    Christopher Family Funerals were a lifeline of kindness, support and professionalism during my family's sad time of losing wife and mother, Susan. Damien Fletcher could not have been a better guide and advisor for us, and arranged and expedited a wonderful funeral service, in the midst of COVID restrictions. I recommend them highly for all those in similar circumstances. Richard Luckyn Malone

    The service we received was thoughtful, caring, respectful and nothing was too much trouble, which made the whole experience of Mums funeral a beautiful one.

  • 5 Matt Lamb 2nd Sep 2020

    I can't speak highly enough. At such a difficult time, Damien was always helpful, understanding, never rushing; a calming support. My sister was, in no way, run of the mill - I asked repeatedly of Damien for what might be seen as unusual services and approaches. Never once was I made to feel anything other than heard and supported. I'm truly grateful.

    Damien Fletcher replied
    Thank you so much for your very kind words, it really was an honour to look after you all. I hope are all keeping safe during these difficult times. Damien and all at Christophers' Family Funerals

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.

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.
