Thank you everyone at Stibbards.  In such difficult times you helped to organise a very dignified funeral for my husband Trevor and I know he would have approved.  You were extremely helpful  when needed and we very much appreciated your expertise.  Many thanks Fiona, Alice, Emma and Beatrice Stone

Roger Shelley 3rd Jan 2021

At a time when you're not at your best to have someone like Debbie to help you in a kind gentle way is marvellous. Simon, the guy in charge on the day was calm, kind and dignified and went out of his way to make sure all was as we would like. Because of Covid mum's friends and neighbours weren't able to join the service but had gathered en rounded. Simon stopped the car and walked some of the route. Really moving. Thank you.

  • 5 Doris Budd 18th Dec 2020

    We can't thank team Stibbard enough for the arrangements for my husband's funeral. Everyone concerned was so thoughtful and compassionate throughout. My visit to their Chapel of Rest in Leigh was not the ordeal I expected but very peaceful and dignified and I came away very glad I had chosen to say my last goodbye that day. My thanks to Debbie who was very helpful throughout. The funeral arrangements went off very well. The music we chose was very suitable, being some of Don's favourite. We have to thank John Stannard for a well chosen eulogy for the occasion which was both sympathetic and uplifting. After the ceremony we weren't rushed at all being given time to talk for a while to friends and relatives ( 2 metres apart of course).

    Lee Marston replied
    thank you for your kind words Doris, we are sure that Debbie will be please knowing that everything went smoothly on the day for 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.

Read more

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.
