Michael White 12th Feb 2021

From our family’s very first contact with Christophers we were impressed by the support, guidance and gentle leadership that Tom provided at the time my father’s death. He listened carefully to our wishes and then proposed options to achieve them. This included introducing us to a celebrant, Rachel Henderson, who demonstrated the most amazing talent in capturing the essence of my father and his life. Throughout the entire time Tom and his team have managed the details, communicated with us clearly and delivered the most ‘amazing’ (my mother’s word) and joyful family funeral service – not something we could have believed possible. The outcome for our family are wonderful memories of a wonderful man, celebrated in the way we had hope for. Our heartfelt thanks to Tom, Damien and Rachel – we consider you a trusted part of our family.

    Christophers dealt with a family in mourning with respect, compassion and professionalism. The arrangements were made with full consultation and good advice was given, excellent. The family would like to say how pleased they were with everything that Christophers did for them. Thank you.

  • 5 Sue Dudley-Ward 6th Sep 2020

    The guidance, support and help given to me by Christophers Family Funerals during August 2020 was outstanding. They gave a professional, personal and caring service in every way, which was invaluable. Living many miles away from Devon, Christophers helped me to organise the funeral of a dear friend, from start to finish, and the service was a lovely celebration of her life. Sincere thanks to Christophers Family Funerals. Susie Dudley-Ward Farnborough Hants

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.
