The level of service and attention to detail that we received from Tim was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble. I was impressed from the outset when Tim came to my home to discuss the arrangements. This visit was followed up with regular phone calls to ensure that everything was in place for the service and that I and the family were happy with arrangements. On the day of the funeral, family and friends were treated with the utmost respect and the whole day was dealt with sensitively. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tim and the team and they have my grateful thanks.

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.

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.
