    At what is an extremely difficult time for any family Tracie and her colleagues did a superb job of guiding us through what we needed to do to ensure a fitting service was provided. Supportive and caring they made a very hard task simpler with their dedication and professionalism.

  • 5 Sarah Brett 24th Aug 2020

    Water and Sons Portchester were wonderful and caring at such a sad time for our family. The team, Tracie and Abbie helped talk us through what we needed to do as it was the first time organising a funeral and made the process really easy. On the day Tony looked after us and our dad at the crematorium whilst we said our good byes. With much thanks.

    I just want to say how wonderful Waters & Sons have been throughout what can only be described as one of the most challenging and sad times. Tracie, Simon, Liza and the team were professional, caring and genuine throughout, we really didn’t need to worry about a single thing. From the cost to the planning and the communication, everything was handled exceptionally and I could recommend them highly enough. Thank you

    We contacted Waters & Sons when we knew we needed to make funeral arrangements for my husband as he was transferred to end of life care. It was so refreshing at the point when we were making enquiries to be given readily the open and honest information in relation to costs. We met with Tracie Bascombe at the Portchester branch who treated us with compassion and professionalism, ensuring that all our needs and wants were recorded. When the time came a simple ‘phone call put everything in place, a true benefit at a very emotional time for the family. We received professional and empathetic support from the entire team at Waters & Sons, in the run up to the funeral and so much on the day. Simon Waters and his team provided customer support of the highest standard in delivering the funeral we wanted and we are grateful to him and every single member of the team we came into contact with on the day. We can only recommend Waters & Sons highly and thank them for the very professional service they delivered. A Swetman

    Tracie at the Portchester branch was very helpful and efficient. Thanks to her efforts the funeral was as good as any such event can be. The only slight criticism is the obituary site which is very, very slow and sometimes crashes. This was pointed out so hopefully the problems are now sorted.

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.
