Brilliant service considering the situation you are in arranging a funeral. Very professional and accommodating to all your needs.  Couldn't praise Carol high enough so helpful and supportive in arranging the funeral also helping in getting an RAF flag for the service which she didn't need to do.  Also Matthew Allen so professional and polite and respectful throughout the day also very helpful with my grandma and myself on helping us through a tough day .  Couldn't recommend them enough

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.
