Thank you for the excellent service you provided which immediately took all the pressure off the family while we came to terms with our loss. We are also grateful for the recommendation of Rev Martyn Douglas who orchestrated the service brilliantly. Thank you.

Exceed service provided with empathy with the family and a service provided so efficiently that removed all of the stress surrounding the situation.

  • 5 Tim Wavell 24th Aug 2021

    We used Nigel Guilder's when Dad died in 2017 as they were just across the road from Mum & Dad's flat. We were so impressed with the professional service and attention to detail that we had no hesitation in asking Nigel Guilder again when Mum died last month. Nigel Guilder's were again extremely professional, reassuring and paid great attention to every little detail every step of the way. Highly recommended.

  • 5 Raymond Pickett 22nd Jul 2021

    We were using Nigel Guilder as our Dad had arranged a funeral plan with them. This was invaluable as it allowed us to plan the funeral to his preferences/ instructions. We were advised throughout by Bob Metcalf, from whether Dad wanted a viewing, the order of service, flowers, donations, set up of a web broadcast, the booking of the crematorium to the day itself. The funeral itself went very well, all the arrangements went like clockwork and were completed professionally. We felt comfortable throughout

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.
