Chris and Nicky were both excellent at helping us through what is a terrible time.  Chris organised everything with ease and the funeral ran perfectly.  When we needed a personal item returning within an hour he was able to accommodate immediately and get it to us. I submitted photos and music for the funeral late, and he was still able to get it sorted with the crematorium audio visual company.  Most importantly the chaps that came to collect my Dad were super kind and respectful on that terrible day.  We have used them twice now and in short I’d definitely recommend this funeral director.  

Sam & Tony Browne 13th Jun 2020

No hesitation in recommending this company.  They bring an exceptional service, support and kindness at a difficult time. 

Albert Lidbury 5th Jun 2020

Very caring, considerate people, nothing was too much trouble. We need thoughtful people more than ever when we are in this awful situation. Thank you

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.
