Cheryl was caring, compassionate and helped us create a perfect send off for our baby son. She allowed us time with him before the day of the funeral and was able to arrange the day very quickly, even during the pandemic. Cheryl also has a range of urns available to purchase so we had a beautiful new home to take our son in. From our first meeting to our last, we couldn't have asked for more from her.

    Really happy with the service we got from Secure Haven particularly Cheryl. She was very kind & compassionate & dealt with all our concerns & questions with empathy which we really appreciate. Both her & the gentleman in the office deal with me very compassionately when I went to pick up my daughters ashes. They made the whole process more bearable at such a tragic time. Thank you so much

  • 4 Pamela Roe 22nd Apr 2020

    In these troubled times the funeral was the best we could have hoped, which I feel was because of the undivided attention that I was given by Paul, so many thanks 

  • 5 Susan Ormes 21st Apr 2020

    I would gladly give Secure Haven six stars if there were such a award. At my lowest point when I was in self isolation as my dear friend had passed away in Broomfield Hospital from COVID-19 I made the right choice and chose Secure Haven to handle every detail of her death. When I was not allowed out they collected all the relevant paperwork from the Bereavement Office, came to my house for signatures (all done through my porch window and distancing observed at all times) then went to the Registrar's Office to obtain the Death Certificate. I could not have wished for better help, compassion and service and their kindness was overwhelming. Paul and Cheryl's attention to detail was excellent and so gratefully received. I know my dear friend when she was in their case was treated with respect and dignity and my heartfelt thanks go out to them. I will always always recommend them to anyone.

    Myself and my family cannot thank Cheryl and Paul enough for there amazing help. Every time we went into their parlour we felt we were the only funeral they were doing   They made us feel so safe and cared for. The beautiful lounge you sit in is like being at home so comfortable. The actual day of my husband funeral was so beautiful and peaceful everything went more than to plan. Once again thank you. 5 stars plus.

    Most professional service ,  made to feel relaxed from day one.  No pressure into having anything that we didn’t want. Informative all the way  so we knew what was happening at all times.   My father had the best service for his celebration of life and so many people spoke of how nice everything was.  All with the help of Paul and his great team .  Can’t thank you enough for how you helped my mother and I through a sad time 

  • 5 Christine Pearson 27th Oct 2019

  • 5 Julia Tosh 19th Oct 2019

    My experience with Secure Haven was second to none. They took such wonderful care of my family member and all of us too. They are compassionate, caring and so helpful I can’t thank them all enough for their organisation. The little details I asked for were carried out and it made everything involved with organising the day so calm. Thank you Paul, Paul and Cheryl for your brilliant personal service at all times. Jillian was the perfect choice as a Celebrant too, so thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

  • 5 Liz Dicker 2nd Sep 2019

    Thoughtful and helpful throughout the whole process and particularly on the day itself. 

  • 5 Erica Latham 27th Aug 2019

    We are so glad we chose Secure Haven for our mothers funeral. The team were kind, gentle, patient and straightforward. Once we had made our choices everything was smoothly prepared on our behalf. There was no up sell at all. They were not the cheapest quote we had, but the marginal difference was worth it in quality and peace of mind. They made a very difficult day ultimately much less stressful and I would recommend them wholeheartedly. 

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.
