Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Unfortunately we have had to use Deighans twice in the last 10 months for both of our parents. Both Ian and Ryan are an absolute credit to the company so kind and respectful on both occasions and genuinely compassionate, outstanding service all round and a beautiful send off for our Mum and Dad. Thank you so much! Michelle,Andrew, Michael & Mark.

Losing someone so close to you and attempting to plan a funeral for the first time was daunting. However, everyone from Deighans funeral parlour was just amazing from the outset. As a family we were treated with warmth, compassion and kindness throughout. Each one of them listened to what we wanted dad's day to be like and they delivered above & beyond our expectations. It was a weight off our shoulders to know that dad was being looked after so well and that we could leave the planning to such kind, considerate and friendly professionals. We will be eternally grateful to Shirley, Ryan, Ken and Ian for organising what turned out to be a wonderful Thanksgiving of the life of our dad Alec & I cannot recommend their service highly enough. From all the Boyle family we thank you all so much. Take care and best wishes Andrew, Emma and Craig

Funeral of Eileen Crutchlow: Can't thank Dieghans Funeral Parlour enough for making the most difficult time of our lives the best it possibly could have been. From the very first time of contacting them until the day of the funeral, they were amazing and always there to answer any questions we had and provide reassurances throughout. I loved the way they introduced us into the chapel of rest to see mum by telling her she had visitors and looking after her in the same room throughout her time there. We couldn't have asked for better support from Ian and Ryan on the day of Mums funeral. Ryan was so professional and friendly and looked after my dad by walking with him into the crematorium. Ian is also so lovely and we couldn't have asked for a better service for my mum. It was so personal and he had listened to everything we had said and was also very professional throughout bringing some well needed and appreciated humour too which we loved. A lovely team of people they all are. Can't thank them enough at what has been a really rubbish time xxx
