Exeter Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

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.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Martin and Mark, Sarah and the team are some of the most sincere, highly organised and caring and also offer the most amazing service at such a difficult time..They supported both my mum and family in such a difficult time during covid and also help us make it a service that shined for dad and brought us the support and help we needed thru this difficult time. I can not say enough thanks for the whole team at Sillifants and thank them again for making it really special.

M Sillifant and Sons have historically dealt with our family funerals and always conducted themselves perfectly.  In difficult circumstances Martin and his team showed respect every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble.  Martin himself was a wealth of information and that helped both myself and my sister deal with my fathers affairs promptly and has put us in a good place to be able to eventually grieve and move on knowing everything has been sorted.  We could trust them and that was a weight off our minds when still in shock from the loss.  Many thanks.

I found the team at Sillifants were so helpful. I I felt confident that they did their best to accommodate all our wishes. We were late starting the ceremony due to guests who were delayed, but they were so sympathetic and managed to delay the ceremony which was much appreciated by us all.
