    Ian George made the funeral of our much loved mum such a beautiful occasion despite the sadness of the day. He couldn't have been more helpful and understanding of our wishes to personalise the day in every way to reflect our love for mum. I would heartily recommend him to anyone having to face the most difficult day of their lives.

    Dear Ian and Danesha A big thank you to you and all of your staff Your service is second to none and we appreciate all the help and guidance afforded us in our chats using zoom and where we also linked up with the Minister from Cheltenham Congregational Church. Nothing is too much trouble for you. Every detail was carried out with empathy, precision and dignity and you were so supportive in this very difficult time. It was a lovely and emotional touch that we were able to return to dear Jean's care home on the way to the crematorium and clap the staff who had been caring for her these past two and a half years. You have the ability to take the stress out of a stressful situation. Thank you. Keith Plumridge

    During such a difficult time Ian certainly made the whole process so much easier to deal with. They were very supportive and professional. Would highly recommend.

  • 5 Peter Hatton 7th Jun 2020

    The help and advice we received from Ian George in making the arrangements for my wife’s funeral was excellent. In these difficult times the service was held outside the chapel of rest , What could have been a sad and dismal experience was in fact a memorable occasion carried out in a respectful and dignified manner by people who cared. Thank you  Peter Hatton and family 

  • 5 Julian Parker 6th Jun 2020

    Ian was recommended to me by a friend who had used his services when her husband passed away. I must say that he performed a perfect funeral service for my brother Fabian. Ian was so very helpful with all his advice and everything he arranged. He took on all the responsibility and was extremely sympathetic and understanding. I would highly recommend Ian to organise your funeral arrangements.

  • 5 Sandra Smith 31st May 2020

    Friendly, caring, compassionate and professional throughout. Thankyou.  

  • 5 Helen Roberts 18th May 2020

    Under these strange times, it must be very difficult for Funeral Directors to give bereaved families the sort of funeral they would want for their loved ones, but Ian George went out of his way to ease the difficulties, arrange for my wishes to be taken into consideration and provide a beautiful, dignified funeral, of which my Mother would have been proud. I cannot recommend him and his team highly enough!

  • 5 Stephen Coombe 5th May 2020

  • 5 James Wayland 2nd May 2020

    Ian and Danesha (with Marie) were able to provide a service far greater than we expected in these difficult times. Ian, my family and I are so extremely grateful for your wonderful compassion and ability to make the difficult possible. Thank you so very much.

  • 5 Tim Dickerson 18th Apr 2020

    Under the current covid-19 circumstances, Ian George and his team gave our Dad an extremely dignifying and respectful service. Highly recommended

  • 5 Larraine Wright 9th Apr 2020

    The support and guidance provided by Ian from my very first phone call was excellent.  I didn't know where to start and Ian guided me through each step including registering my dad's death.  We discussed the type of service we would like and at dads request we didn't want a religious service. Ian arranged for Marie Pembridge (Independent Funeral Celebrant) to contact us and would officiate the service. Marie was amazing. The service was perfect in every way and that was down to how Marie capture are thoughts and feelings and wrote and delivered it perfectly. At such a difficult time due to Covid-19 the funeral for dad was everything we could have asked for. We send our sincere thanks to you all.

  • 5 David Mossman 13th Mar 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.
