  • 5 Pauline Patt 7th Jan 2017

    Evidently organising the funeral of a loved one is one of the most difficult things to do. We dealt directly with Lee Sherborne who made the whole process run very smoothly. Lee was very thoughtful and 'real' throughout and covered the most minor details, which could easily be overlooked, as you are dealing with such an upsetting and stressful time. The overall handling of the funeral was very professional and we would certainly recommend this business and use their services again.

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.
