    The funeral was undertaken with dignity and poise. Everything we requested was dealt with in a gracious and caring manner. We could not have asked for anything more for dad’s final journey. I would not hesitate in using them again.

  • 5 Pat Jarvis 24th May 2020

    They have taken care of everything for the family during this emotional time. From the first phone call which immediately put us at ease, to putting us in touch with Julian Wheeler (who has also been great at this time) and dealing with everything else. Nothing is too much trouble no matter what the question. Their service has been above and beyond our expectations and we would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them to anyone.

  • 5 Debbie Meese 10th Feb 2020

    Braddicks and Sherborne were amazing from start to finish; they delivered the service with such professionalism and efficiency. From the day that I first spoke to them and right up until the end, they were really attentive to my needs and took their time to ensure that I was happy and comfortable with the arrangements, and any changes or wishes that I had for the service were easily dealt with. They handle everything with the greatest respect and they could not have helped me to organise a better send off for my late husband. Thank you again for everything that you did for myself and the family. 

  • 5 Andy Copas 20th Jan 2020

    Very helpful. Lee Sherborne provided me with all the info I needed to register my fathers death and more besides. Beyond the call of duty I think. The young lady who led the funeral, Georgina, was exception. Particularly as this was her first funeral. Very professional, competent and understanding.  Their charges were very reasonable for the services provided. I would certainly recommend them.

  • 5 Ron Davey 3rd Jan 2020

    Lee was excellent, from collecting Mum on the morning of her death to the service. We couldn't have wished for a better service at a very difficult time, Lee and the team made things easier, they took all the worry out of arrangements. Thank you x

  • 5 Rodney Grainger 5th Nov 2019

    Lee was excellent from start to finish. With family members in other parts of the country wanting to have input there were times when things were changed, Lee took all this in his stride. It was good to have their professionalism at a very difficult time

  • 5 Heather Schofield 4th Nov 2019

    We wish to say sincere thanks to Lee and all at Braddicks and Sherborne for the efficiency with which you arranged and conducted Dads funeral, nothing was too much trouble, from the initial first call which helped to make a very difficult time a little more bearable. We can never forget your kindness. Thank you

  • 5 Gwyn Lewis 28th Oct 2019

    This has been a very emotional time for me and our family. We are all so grateful to Andy and his team for looking after us with such sympathy and kindness. Without it we would have not have given my lovely wife, Julie, such a loving, dignified and respectful tribute to her life so sadly cut short. Thank you so much, Gwyn Lewis

  • 5 Tracey O'Sullivan 2nd Jul 2019

    An amazing service provided by Braddicks and Sherborne. The staff were extremely helpful with any queries that I had or if I needed to drop things off. Lee was fantastic and really helpful when it came to planning. On the day I received a phone call explaining what would happen prior to arriving at the crematorium. Couldn't have asked for a better service. Thank you so much for all that you have done.

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.
