  • 5 M French 22nd Jul 2021

    I don't often leave reviews, but felt the service we received from Chris at RP Byrom was excellent at what was a very difficult time for the family. The service was professional and courteous, with Chris always being available and helpful without ever being intrusive.

  • 5 J Burgess 1st Jul 2021

    After losing our Dad suddenly we went to see Chris at Byrom and Son. Chris was professional, supportive and guided us through the process of arranging Dad funeral with compassion. I really don’t know what we would have done without him. 

  • 5 H Standen 28th Jun 2021

    Excellent from the start. We were recommended to RP Byrom & Son by a family friend who spoke very highly of them, and we were not disappointed. After losing our Dad relatively young, none of us had ever found ourselves in this situation where we had to plan a funeral. Chris at RP Byrom & Son was amazing from start to finish. He really took the weight off of our shoulders and made the day run as perfectly as possible to give our Dad the best send off. We had so many compliments after the service about how well run the service was and how appropriate it all was for our Dad and we could not be more grateful for Chris’ support and expertise. He was very understanding, calm and organized which meant we could fully trust him to make the day special, and he really did.  Thank you Chris, you are a star. 

  • 5 A Hargreaves 27th Jun 2021

    From the moment we contacted R P Byrom & Son we felt well looked after.  Chris took us through the process in a compassionate and thoughtful way.  He was always available on the phone if we ever had any questions.  We would highly recommend their services.  

  • 5 P Webb 6th May 2021

    At such a bad time for us Chris and his team made things as stress free as was possible. Their attention to detail was perfect and I shall never forget seeing Chris in a top hat with his cane walking slowly leading the hearse carrying my Brother. It was moving, solemn and perfect for that moment.... Thank you to everyone at Byrom & Son.

  • 5 John Worby 31st Jan 2021

    R P Byrom & Son Funeral Directors come highly recommended by us, Chris and his team were so very helpful, respectful and polite, guiding us through everything we needed to do. They took on all the organising for the crematorium and the church service at Heanton Church afterwards, such a great help in a time when you really need it. They were even able to provide and run their music system with the music we chose at both locations. We could not have asked for a better service from them, its a big thank you from us.

  • 5 Mrs John 25th Jan 2021

    This was the saddest time of my life. I lost my husband, Den on New Years Day. My son, Paul had all the contact with you going through procedures for the funeral service.  Byrom & Son were very professional. On the day of the funeral, the hearse was brought to my house and everything from done with great dignity and you showed the upmost respect for all the family. I would highly recommend you to anyone in this unfortunate situation.

  • 5 Barry Edwards 16th Jan 2021

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.

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.
