Andreas Antoniou 25th Aug 2018

We were very happy with the service we received. Jane was very sympathetic, supportive and efficient. Everything was carried out with great sensitivity and concern. The funeral director gave great respect to our family and to our loved one. We were also very happy with the service at the crematorium. However, we unfortunately did not receive a courtesy call from the limousine company about pick up times which did cause us a little stress on the day.

Susan last 8th Jul 2018

Smooth support at every event Took time to listen to what was being asked, nothing appeared to be to much trouble. Very supportive at at a distressing time. Would have been s 5 star rating, but I was not happy with the transfer from coming out of the hearse and up onto the shoulders, 1 of the members of staff almost lost his footing and went flying backwards, while trying to ensure that my husband remained on shoulders and on his coffin. Heart was in my mouth and myself and family members, thought that he was going to be dropped. Rest of service went very well. Sue Last.

Robert Izzard 23rd Apr 2018

The funeral was exactly how our Mother would have wanted it. The Funeral Director, the drivers and pall bearers did a fantastic job which was very helpful given the stressful occasion. In any other circumstances it would be judged as a resounding success for organisation, the helpfulness of the staff coupled with their professionalism. Thank you to you all. Bob Izzard & Pauline Ward [nee Izzard] and family.

    Excellent service. From the moment we first contacted Broomfield Rd we were met with caring organised staff. The whole process was so smooth and we did not have to get involved very much. The actual day was almost enjoyable, it all "just happened" without any hitches. Special thanks to Jane Millbank, our celebrant Barry Milsom, our conductor Rob. Thank you all so much for making a sad day so beautiful.

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.

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.
