  • 5 Terry Stamp 12th Oct 2020

    Having never had to arrange a funeral before, I was rather anxious after my wife passed away, I shouldn’t have worried, Ed and his team were so understanding and professional, from the first meeting, everything was simply explained, no pushing you into things you didn’t need, just honest advice, a minister was recommended to me by Ed that suited my needs, and Matthew delivered a beautiful memorable service. I have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan Terry, And thank everyone for a stress free professional caring service.

    There are no words to say how amazing Jonathan Terry’s team are. They were always respectful, sincere, professional and obliging. From Tracey in the office to Bradley and David who came and collected Mum with such dignity and grace, nothing was too much trouble for us to visit Mum in the chapel, the driver on the day was very courteous making sure the funeral drive kept altogether and not forgetting Ed who guided us through the whole process and was with us on the day we said our final goodbyes. An outstanding service at the saddest time of our lives. The whole family would like to thank you all.

  • 5 Barry Gover 2nd Aug 2020

    As a family, we would like to thank everyone at Jonathan Terry’s, Peartree Avenue,  for their care, patience and guidance during this time.  The whole team were incredibly supportive and thoughtful throughout: from the initial contact with Tracey, to the meeting with Jonathan, to all the people involved on the day itself. Their attentiveness to detail and understanding of our mum were demonstrated with their choice of Dave on the day, who was so thoughtful and kind, to their choice of celebrant Matthew, who captured mum perfectly and wrote the most beautiful celebration of her life.  Our heartbreak and grief were handled with sensitivity, dignity and professionalism throughout, which helped make it so much easier for the whole family during this difficult time. 

  • 5 S L 1st Aug 2020

    We are really happy with the service. A representative came to see us at our family home and offered a comprehensive briefing on what our options were as well as answering all of the questions we had written down. Supported our family at an incredibly difficult time and we didn’t have to worry about any aspect of the arrangements.  J.T. funeral directors were considerate, sympathetic, and they were able to not only work with us but offer input in areas that we were undetermined. For any particular wishes that we had, Mr Terry ensured that they were catered for. The staff at J.T. funeral directors and very polite, kind, and gracious. The considerate touches where it matters and processional choreography on behalf of the mourning family is immensely noteworthy. Communication was easy and Mr Terry kept in touch very regularly. We couldn’t have asked for a lovelier, beautiful service for our loved one. The whole family and our friends were totally pleased with how the day went. Thank you. 

  • 5 Pamela Ridge 29th Jul 2020

    Your service to us was excellent, thoughtful and caring with personal attention to detail throughout. Especially your patience in helping us to find the music that Ted had enjoyed playing on his piano at home to accompany the service. People who attended have commented how friendly and family orientated our celebration of Ted's life was. Thankyou to you all for helping us to achieve this. Pamela Ridge and family.

  • 5 Philip Smith 25th Jul 2020

  • 5 Jacqueline Bocock 25th Jul 2020

    This was the second family funeral Johnathan Terry have arrange for us, although they were three years apart the service and standard at both were second to none. They are caring and sensitive to the bereaved and all our needs were catered for. I would use them again.

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.
