    Stibbards were just brilliant as the communication was great and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you to you all for your support.

    We would like to thank Lisa,Stuart and all at Stibbards for making what was a very difficult day run very smooth.. They was fantastic from start to finish  And we cannot thank them enough especially Lisa 

  • 5 Mathew Baker 12th May 2020

    We would like to thank all the staff at Stibbards for the overwhelming help and support that they have given our family at this time. We would like to especially thank Lisa at the Canvey branch for going above and beyond. Additionally a thanks to Stuart the funeral director on the day for his help, guidance and reverance shown.

  • 5 Michelle Rawlings 28th Apr 2020

    Lisa in the Canvey branch has been exceptionally helpful and always there for us.  My only negative comment would be about the webcast. We paid extra for this because friends and family were not allowed to come to the funeral. The quality was not very good at all and the whole thing froze half way through. Lisa is trying to help us get a recording but this was very frustrating and disappointing especially for Paulines close family.

  • 5 Jenna Brown 27th Apr 2020

    S. Stibbards & Sons, Canvey Island have provided the highest standard service and in particular Lisa has shown kindness and professionalism from start to end. Thank you for ensuring everything run smoothly.

  • 5 Karen Ward 27th Apr 2020

    I just wanted to send the biggest, heartfelt thanks to all the staff there at Stibbards. To say you done my dad proud is an understatement in these very difficult circumstances at present. My mum felt overwhelmed by the send off he received at Kings & to take a single rose from my mums floral heart & lay it on her windowsill was a beautiful thought.  You have been so caring & considerate throughout. Thank you again Karen Ward & family 

  • 5 Nicola Gardner 25th Apr 2020

    Very professional and caring in these strange times and even though we were restricted in what we could have and do we still felt Keith was given an excellent funeral.  The funeral service itself was beautiful. Lisa especially was caring and helpful throughout the whole process and nothing was too much bother. Thank you for making an awful situation for us bearable. Nicola, Tory and Becky x

  • 5 Mackay Joan 20th Apr 2020

    Excellent service from a team who couldn’t do enough to help us during a difficult time. Special thanks to Lisa for all her help. Would recommend their services. 

  • 5 June Bailey 13th Apr 2020

    Thank you Lisa and the team you made a very sad and difficult time bearable .. we have been lucky to have been able to attend my mums funeral and although there was only a few of us there , the live streaming enabled the rest of the family to attend on line ..  thank you  all for everything you done for us  I really appreciate it all ..

  • 5 Lorraine Head 11th Apr 2020

    Would recommend, they were so kind and professional.

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.
