    David Robb provided us with a first class service for our dad's funeral. My family were given a highly professional, personal and fitting service from start to finish and David went above and beyond our expectations. He is a lovely gentleman who we welcomed and warmed to instantly. David looked after and took care of everything for us leaving us with no extra stress etc at this difficult and sad time, this made the funeral easy for us. Outstanding quality. Faultless and flawless service provided to us and we highly recommend David Robb. Over the past few years i buried my Nana and Mum using two different larger well known directors who both in fact don't compare to David Robb. Wish we'd met him sooner. Massive heartfelt thanks and appreciation to him and his staff from all of us! Highly recommended!

  • 5 Craig Louden 8th Apr 2017

    David Robb is the best Funeral Directors in the business. My Grans funeral was dealt with the utmost respect. David is a very caring person and had all aspects of the funeral covered to the finest detail. David and his team had my Gran looking perfect and David's own sentimental touch is very considerable and made me and all my family feel at ease during our time of sorrow and grief. We as a family thank David and his team for all their support they have given to all of the family. I would highly recommended David Robb to any family that would require this service.

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?
