    Very helpful and lovely service conducted. Well organised and thoughtful.

  • 5 Sue Boyd 1st Oct 2020

    We would like to thank Thomas and Denman for all the help we received with my fathers funeral. During this difficult time Derek Trotter was sympathetic to myself and my family, always keeping us informed . Petra Hallisey was the celebrant who conducted the service. She spent time with me, showing such empathy about what l wanted her to say at this sad time, but she helped make it a celebration of my dads life and gentle words. Thomas and Denman are a family run business who go that extra mile to make sure everything was as easy for us as possible, your help was very appreciated, many thanks again

  • 5 Peter Denny 30th Aug 2020

    Derek and his team provided a caring service with empathy at a very difficult time. Any issues that were raised or concerns we had were swiftly dealt with for which we were very grateful. We would recommend Derek without hesitation.

  • 5 Sandra de Caires 31st Jul 2020

    Derek was very attentive and caring to the needs and requirements for my Mum’s cremation funeral. I was kept me up to date and informed on a regular basis by  Derek, who had also arranged for and collected the catholic priest on the day of the service. The arrangements and service were elegant and simple and I am confident that Mum would have been very pleased.  Thank you again for your time and consideration.

    Derek at Thomas and Denman was extremely helpful whilst I was trying to arrange a funeral for my brother during lockdown and from a distance. Especially when I made a mistake on the paperwork which was quickly spotted and corrected. Excellent all round service. 

  • 5 Hazel Evans 13th May 2020

    My father in law died at home in Weymouth four days into the UK’s COVID 19 lock down. Most of his family live in Birmingham and due to the travel restrictions, everything to do with his cremation arrangements have had to be done either over the phone or via email. Derek from Thomas and Denman has been brilliant and has guided us through this most difficult process with professionalism, courtesy, and kindness. We’ve been kept informed of progress at all times and Derek even went to the trouble of arranging flowers for us with a local florist. The family were not able to be present for the cremation. So, Derek assumed a role as their representative and they will be forever grateful for the compassionate service his company provides.

  • 5 Paul Betteridge 10th Apr 2020

    Derek and his staff were excellent. Very courteous making the entire experience a perfect one. They made sure everything was organised even when we were not organise ourselves (I forgot to book the flowers), Derek sorted and he personally kept us fully informed all along the way. They went above and beyond to ensure my dad's funeral went perfectly. I highly recommend Thomas & Denman, and glad to support a small local business in Wallisdown. Thanks again for a great personal service.

  • 5 Diane Magro 31st Jan 2020

    This company went above and beyond in making the hardest time of my life easy. Derek was fantastic in understanding I live in Nottingham so not easy to pop in was happy to collect mum and for me come into fill paperwork on a saturday. Sharon was so polite and reassuring even made sure some locks of mums hair were cut for me. Sharon and Derek listened to what I wanted and showed the family came before profit. On the day of the service they were great still checking with me all the time that I wanted to carry coffin and if I felt it was to much they had someone on standby. Derek was in touch from the start of my journey with them and even now after the event he has called to see how I am. They organised for my donations to be sent to the 2 charities chosen and advised me of how much was raised. I highly recommend this company. The staff are amazing.

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.

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?
