James Summers were excellent throughout the entire process - compassionate and caring, they led us through every step of the process and took the tension & pressure off us and allowed us to concentrate on grieving without worrying about the funeral process itself. The funeral day was organised seamlessly & the service was excellent. On behalf of our whole family we would like to thank James Summers & staff Stephen Reeves, Charlotte & Vicar the Reverend James Henley. Regards, Rob Spry

    Unfortunately over the last few years I have had to use the services of James Summers and each occasion I have been very grateful for their kindness, efficiency and professionalism. David Williams was my contact and I cannot praise him enough for his thoroughness and thoughtfulness through these events.

    A really amazing service from summers. We were looked after by Stephen Reeves who was wonderful from start to finish. He really understood our needs and was so helpful arranging all the individual parts that came together to make the day beautiful. Can honestly say we were not disappointed by anything on the day, it was perfect! Thank you

    I must thank Maureen for her warmth and humanity throughout this sad occasion of the death of my dear mum. Congratulations Maureen it was a lovely funeral very professionally done. Thank you to everyone involved.

  • 3 Melanie Pomeroy 20th Jul 2021

    A very friendly funeral director who helped organise and co-ordinate the funeral. However, I found one reception staff rather unfriendly and abrupt - especially when I telephoned to arrange to come in and pay the bill. A softer approach would have been appreciated. It felt very cold, and unfriendly.  They need to remember that they are providing a service to vulnerable people.

  • 5 Jackie Davies 17th Jul 2021

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.

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.
