  • 5 Norma Mills 21st Jan 2020

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to Debbie for looking after me during the process of organising my Dad’s funeral. Her kind words and support was much needed, as I was dealing with everything on my own, and coping with my seriously ill mother at the same time. She gently advised of the choices that were available, and that there wasn’t any pressure to make decisions quickly. I also wanted to thank Simon for subtly guiding me through what I needed to do on the day. I appreciated everything he did, and the little touches made a huge difference. For example, asking me if I would like a flower from the floral tribute – that was very thoughtful! Finally, I wish to thank all the other staff that work behind the scenes, they also contributed to making the day run smoothly.

  • 5 Alison Patrick 24th Dec 2019

    Thank you so much to Debbie and her team for arranging such a lovely service for my aunt. We so appreciate all their help and guidance, especially as we live a distance away. From meeting Debbie at our initial meeting to the very professional pull bearers and the very helpful member of staff  who looked after us during the service- we are very grateful. Thank you so much.

    Sensitive and understanding- They do their own printing so I could change the eulogy right up to the day before the funeral. All in all I felt there was always somebody to support me.

  • 5 Lucy Butler 30th Nov 2019

    Stibbards provided an excellent service from the initial planning stage to the funeral itself- no request was too much trouble and we always felt supported. Debbie was kind, empathetic and very patient dealing with our family at such a distressing time. We truly felt the burden of arranging the funeral was lifted, allowing us time to grieve and reflect. I would have no hesitation in recommending them wholeheartedly. Lucy

  • 5 Howard Rankin 8th Aug 2019

    Compassionate yet efficient throughout , Debbie was particularly helpful 

  • 5 Jackie Pace 23rd Jul 2019

    We were returning very satisfied customers for my mother’s funeral, sadly less than a year after my father. Once again, Debbie was kind, supportive and accommodating. I always felt there was plenty of time and when we needed to vary our requirements, the changes were made quickly and efficiently. She was very clear about costs at our first meeting and supplied a detailed breakdown of these in writing. I received clear emails with all the details and links I needed and a phone call 2 days before the funeral both to confirm plans and to check there were no issues still to solve. On the day everything went smoothly and we were supported and organised thoughtfully and competently. I haven’t collected mum’s ashes yet, but know from my dad that this was arranged flexibly and, consistently with Stibbards attention to detail, they were handed over with the usual box in a soft fabric bag. A big thank you to everyone involved. 

  • 5 Josephine Hurley 24th Jun 2019

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.
