  • 5 Stuart MacWilliam 22nd Nov 2019

    We used M Sillifant and Sons for the funeral of our beloved friend, Geoff Urwin, a week ago today. A neighbour said to me the other day, 'I know it sounds daft, but it was the most beautiful funeral I've ever been to.' A large part of the credit must go to Mark and his team, who helped us plan and carry out the funeral with efficiency, sensitivity and calm patience. We are all very grateful to them. Stuart Macwilliam

  • 5 Tony Carnell 22nd Nov 2019

    Everyone at Sillifants were understanding and helpful, making the whole process of arranging my late father's funeral as trouble-free as possible. The funeral itself was conducted with the utmost dignity and respect. I couldn't have asked for a more professional and diligent funeral director and have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending M.Sillifant & Sons.

  • 5 Jackie Holland 17th Nov 2019

    A first class service from such kind, caring and understanding people who we cannot thank you enough.

  • 5 Carole Guppy 5th Nov 2019

    I would definitely recommend Sillifants funeral directors . The service they provided was excellent from start to finish . They were very efficient in helping me to organise my fathers funeral and guided me through each step which helped to make a very emotional time more bearable for us as a family. Nothing was too much trouble for them and on the day reassured our sons as the palbearers. I can't thank them enough.

  • 5 Alex Holland 1st Nov 2019

    We could not have had more understanding, caring and helpful service from M Sillifant & Sons.  We mainly dealt with Mark, but had brief conversations with his other colleagues as well.  At such difficult times as this, you need someone who can just take care of everything for you, they certainly did that.

  • 5 Nigel Hardman 14th Oct 2019

    Sillifant,s dealt very well with my Mother's funeral two yeras ago and so I did not hesitate to use them again when my Father died recently. Yet again they delivered an excellent service at a very reasonable cost. I would recommend them to anyone near Exeter and the south west. For both my parents they supplied a tailored service that was just right. Nigel Bristol.

    Very  nice people 

  • 5 Janice Vooght 22nd Sep 2019

    Can only say thank you so much to the amazing team, and especially to Martin. From the offset he was re-assuring, helpful and comforting. It was so good to know that we were going to be able to give my Uncle the great send off he so rightly deserved and Martin and the team ensured this absolutely happened, from the very beginning to the very end - thank you.

  • 5 Sharon Carpenter 20th Sep 2019

    Excellent

  • 5 Becky James 13th Sep 2019

    The whole process, from start to completion was smooth, professional and calm. I was made to feel special, as if my grief and mother's funeral was top of their agenda. Communication was superb, quick and kind. Everything I could want arranged was. Thankyou for making what is an incredibly upsetting time into a dignified, special, honourable time for me, mom and my family. Totally recommend M.Sillifant.

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.
