  • 5 Mark Anderson 27th May 2020

    We've sadly had cause to use Stibbards twice in the last 12 months and the extended family once and the service has been impeccable on each occasion. Debbie in Leigh is organises everything expertly and sensitively and the professionalism and consideration and kindness of the team on the day and especially the director is exceptional. Stibbards are proudly local and so well connected with relevant other firms and organisations in the area (solicitors, registry office, florists etc.) that this makes things even more efficient. And oddly in the Covid period some aspects of the certification and other processes were made smoother. Thank you for a wonderful job Stibbards.

  • 5 Patricia Nuckley 26th May 2020

    Emma put me at ease immediately and explained everything in detail. She gave excellent customer service and I would recommend Stibbards to anyone. The funeral was as perfect as it could be during these trying times. Thank you for your sympathy and understanding.

  • 5 Doreen Lowe 22nd May 2020

    At a very difficult time, made more so by the current restrictions due to covid-19, Debbie was professional, caring and compassionate. From the very first phone call she and her team ensured that everything was arranged perfectly and exactly as we wanted.

  • 5 Sheri Andrews 11th May 2020

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.
