All the staff that I met who had dealings with my husband was very sympathetic to my needs. Ben, Lee, Georgina all were at hand to answer any questions that I had . Their support meant a lot to me.

Amy Hawkes 18th Aug 2021

Great service throughout. One issue with supply of the coffin, but this was dealt with satisfactorily. Georgina was in particular a great help and very knowledgeable; a great asset. The service at the crem was excellent. Mary Law was the perfect celebrant. Provision of the Justgiving donation links and funeral arrangements info was a really good way to inform friends and family in a simple way. Thank you.

Wendy Mackie 17th Aug 2021

Outstanding, professional service when you need it most.  Every member of staff went the extra mile to ensure my father received the farewell he would have been proud of.

    Unfortunately I have had to use the services of Braddicks and Sherbourne 3 times in the past 4 years and the service has always been excellent.  I would not hesitate to recommend Lee and his team to anyone.  I just hope I won’t be needing their services again for a very long time. But thank you Lee and Michelle for all your help with everything.

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.
