Julian Tewkesbury 25th May 2020

R. P. Byrom and Son were very considerate, courteous and attentive in their dealings with me in connection with my Mother's funeral.   Their sympathetic approach and care for the details of what was required, in what has been a very difficult time for everyone, was exemplary - to the point of providing face masks for all of us attending the service. I would recommend them to anyone.

Bob Tucker 9th May 2020

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.
