    Stibbards funeral directors went above and beyond with every request we had. Even under the limiting circumstances of the lockdown we were still able to give Colin the funeral he deserved.

    Martin and his team were fabulous from beginning to end. Took such care of our little boy and us as a family. Cant thank them enough.

  • 5 Keith Payne 7th Feb 2020

    Stibbards were excellent from the initial meeting right the way through to the funeral. They kept in regular contact, checking that our wishes had not changed, confirming the arrangments and the exact timings for the day. The day the transport and the service went like clockwork. One particular nice touch was the drive along the seafront to the crematorium, so much beter than the main roads. They made a really nice day of such a sad occasion. 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.
