Ian and Denesha helped me through an extremely difficult time when arranging my son Simon’s funeral. The caring and professional service that they provided could not have been bettered. They were always available to discuss any of my questions, it was just like talking to friends in my hour of need.

Lisa Kent 1st Mar 2021

Thank you Ian. Mum was delighted at your way of dealing with the whole process. Your very simple and human nature made the whole process exactly what dad would've wanted. He was a very ' no nonsense' type of person and your simple and kind service was perfect, I know he would've approved. I would have no problem with recommending your services.

Linda Wilkinson 28th Feb 2021

We cannot praise Ian and Denesha enough for the wonderful way they looked after us in organising our Dad's funeral. Nothing was a problem to them. Ian and Denesha explained everything fully and showed great empathy for our loss. No matter how much the arrangements were altered they just wanted to make sure we were happy with what we had chosen for the funeral. Ian held the service for us and made it very special and personal. Ian and the pallbearers showed great respect and dignity towards both the family and our Dad. We would not hesitate in recommending them.

    Ian and Danesha could not have been more thoughtful, helpful and kind in arranging my husband's funeral. They took the time to really understand our wishes and by doing this, created a bespoke, individual service for a young man. Nothing was left to chance, both went above and beyond in organising the detail and as a family we felt that they had everything completely under control. Their expertise coupled with their warmth and consideration really did make a difference in very sad circumstances.

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.
