  • 5 Angela Ricketts 14th Dec 2020

    Excellent, compassionate, friendly service.... went out of their way to accommodate requests, we spoke everyday on the phone about aspects of the funeral, the service felt very personal.  They promised to look after mum when she was with them and we felt this was sincere.  They were very helpful as we priced up the funeral, they gave costings when asked straightaway which helped us to plan the funeral we could afford. Although the funeral was held during this COVID season everything was done wonderfully well and we all felt the day (although very sad) could not have gone better. Thank you in particular to Ian and Ryan for all the care we received as a family.

  • 5 Jane Hemingway 8th Nov 2020

    Deighan’s provided an excellent service from start to finish. Ian was very helpful throughout and helped guide us with decisions. He presented a very moving service at Overdale which was enhanced with a photo tribute. The mourners unable to attend the service were able to link to a Webcast which was a valued option in these difficult times. The family would have no hesitation in recommending Deighan’s.

  • 5 Paul Whittaker 6th Nov 2020

    Through a very sad time Deighans were wonderful. They looked after Dad for 2 weeks until we could hold the funeral and were always really helpful and sorted things we hadn’t even thought off .

    10 out of 10, 5 star service received from Deighan's Funeral Parlour. Ian was fabulous, so compassionate and a truly genuine and sincere person. He went above and beyond in arranging Mary's funeral, nothing was too much trouble, he put our minds at ease and made the daunting process of arranging a funeral so much easier, he really wants to provide the best send off for a loved one as he possibly can. Thank you so much.

    Shirley Deighan replied

    The service we received was excellent. It was professional personal and friendly. We were kept updated every step of the way. Mum was well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. The funeral was thoughtful and caring and better than we could wish for during this lockdown. What could have been such an ordeal was smooth and as pain free as possible. My family cannot thank you enough .

    Can't thank them enough for there help and guidance under such stressful circumstances. With the loss of our eldest granson Jack Wright at only 23 years old . This is so painful as I type this but my family and Jack was treated with utmost dignity and respect .Under unprecedented circumstances with the Coroner Virus restrictions in place at this time . Thanks again from ....Robert Skillington and Glynis Holden ....Jack's grandad and Nana

    Many thanks Rob. It was a privilege to look after Jack for you all and the choice of music for his service was just perfect. Thanks to you and Glynis for helping us to arrange a service that Jack's many friends would have been proud of.
  • 5 Beverley Crerar 23rd Mar 2020

    Deighan’s were spot on in all they did for us. They were helpful, professional, sympathetic but up beat. Ian did dad proud with his eulogy and an 80 year old lady said ‘it was the best funeral she had been to’....I think that was a compliment! Thank you. 

  • 5 Judith Bowling 16th Mar 2020

    I thought that both Shirley and Ian were extremely helpful friendly and very caring Also they went to great lengths to make sure everything was done to our needs and the service was conducted perfectly.

  • 5 Michelle Hughes 8th Mar 2020

    Excellent they thought of everything

  • 5 John Burgess 24th Feb 2020

    I would not have wanted my Mother to have been looked after by anyone else.  Dieghans could not have been any more helpful from start to finish. They made the whole process so much easier.  Thank you! 

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.
