The funeral directors who looked after my Dad from his death to the funeral were wonderful. They really took care of us as a family and were compassionate, supportive and helpful. Their professionalism and support helped us through a difficult time and we couldn’t be more grateful.

    All members of staff were kind and attentive to our needs. They made planning our sons funeral as stress free as possible. For that we are truly grateful.

  • 5 Jan Taylor 12th Apr 2021

    The quality of service and level of attention which my family received were simply excellent. At a very difficult time, they afforded us the utmost understanding, sensitivity and efficient assistance. They excelled at all stages of the process and were exemplary in all of their dealings with us and in matters which they handled. We would recommend their services unreservedly.

  • 5 George Haley 24th Mar 2021

    Absolutely brilliant in all aspects of our sad time. Nothing was too much bother for Lee and his team. Would definitely recommend this service at your sad time if your unsure who to use.

  • 5 Linda McKee 13th Feb 2021

    The service we received from Gartons was excellent, particularly bearing in mind the pandemic. Our point of contact was Lee & he liaised continuously, checking and cross checking every detail to ensure we had the funeral we wanted for my mother in law despite the lockdown. Thank you all so much.

  • 5 David Brown 12th Feb 2021

    M Garton & Son provide a very professional service. In difficult circumstances, Lee and his associates made every effort to ensure the Funeral was conducted with dignity and respect. Thanks to all.

  • 5 Margaret O’Grady 12th Feb 2021

    From the very first phone call, which was one of the hardest calls I have ever had to make. Eric was professional, caring and the calming voice I needed at one of the most difficult times I’ve had to face. Eric talked me trough the process at the start and continued to be there supporting me throughout. Giving advice and a kind word, I felt he really knew and understood exactly what I and my late husband wanted for the service. The celebrant Carol was also amazing, one comment from one of my sons was “did Carol know my husband” he thought she was a family friend, because of the way she spoke about my husband at the service.  I certainly felt like I had gained 2 friends in Carol and Eric which helped enormously to get me through a really tough time. Eric promised to make it perfect and he certainly did deliver on his promise.  I can’t thank Eric and Carol enough, they were both amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend M Gartons & Sons.

    A funeral in the covid is inevitably even more difficult. Lee and Eric who took care of my husband’s funeral were not only very professional but also thoughtful, empathetic and helpful. I wholeheartedly recommend them.

  • 5 Sarah Toohey 9th Mar 2020

    All I can say is everything that they do is perfect and I would recommend their service highly. They have helped me through two very upsetting and difficult times in my life. They are so understanding and kind and know their jobs inside out. Nothing is too much trouble and at times like this kindness and knowledge is so important. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for everything you have done for me

  • 5 Kathleen Turner 8th Feb 2020

    Lee from Gartons funeral service was brilliant. He handled my father's funeral with respect and dignity. We ordered an American type casket and Lee made sure we got it on time . They are the most professional people. Ever Thank you xx

  • 5 Peter Fawcett 15th Jan 2020

    Dear Frazer, We would like to thank you and your team at Garton’s for your professionalism and sympathy at this distressing time. Whilst Denise was poorly we lost her very suddenly and unexpectedly. We wanted Denise’s service to be a celebration of her life and from the start Frazer could see our vision. From the distinctive coffin to the magnificent horses the day was as perfect as we could have wished for despite being one of the most upsetting and stressful situations we as a family have ever found ourselves in.

  • 5 Pete Scarbrough 20th Dec 2019

    M Garton & Son gave a very professional service from start to finish.  I would recommend them as a first choice for a funeral director every time.

  • 5 Carol Brumhead 20th Dec 2019

    I can not thank M. Garton & Son Ltd., enough for all their help and support during the days immediately following Mum's passing and on the day of the funeral itself. At our initial meeting we were given lots of advice, information and options we needed to think about. Having never organised a funeral before, M. Garton & Son Ltd., made the whole process relatively simple and worry free which is exactly what you need when you have just lost a loved one.Nothing was too much trouble and the service they provided was exemplary. I would not hesitate to recommend M. Garton & Son Ltd., to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate position where they require the services of a funeral director.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

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?
