Maureen Wallace 5th Dec 2020

We were very pleased with the service received from the Braintree George Yard branch. Lynne was most kind and helpful in arranging the funeral including the beautiful flowers. Kari in Clare Road was very supportive in our grief. The funeral staff on the day checked arrangements before attending and were well turned out. All in all everything went to plan which we were most grateful for.

    Very happy with the complete service. Attended Sonja in the chapel, and she was wonderfully presented. Had a little problem with the order of service, which initially lacked imagination, but everything came correct on the day, and the service was as good as it could be.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.
