I entrusted my dad with David and Simon Waters. They looked after our family with respect, understanding in a very personal and professional manner. In a time when you need help and support they were there every step of the way. May I also say thank you to liza Riggway who conducted a lovely tribute to my dad. Kind Regards Tracy Hardy

  • 5 Valerie Barnard 3rd Jan 2020

    Considerate, compassionate and caring. They were kindness itself and respected all our wishes and cared for my husband on his final journey.

  • 5 Diana Champion 15th Dec 2019

    I am so pleased that we chose Waters & Sons, who had nothing but respect for my elderly father at a time of immense grief in loosing his wife of 62 years. At a sad time for us, we didn't like the 'matter of fact' attitude shown by what I would call the 'big' funeral directors. They seemed to be money orientated and wanted to get as much money from us as possible. Waters & Sons listened to what we wanted and have been so good in accommodating my fathers wishes. They were not out to sell us the most expensive funeral they had , they simply wanted to help us through a difficult time and do what was best for us. A breath of fresh air in my view.. Whilst I know that funeral directors are not a place you want to have to visit, I can highly recommend Waters & Sons. A special thank you to David Waters. I know this was the first time he had been so involved and he personally handled everything for us. I would also like to mention the Celebrant Liza Riggway , who was so moving in the way she delivered the service. She set just the right tone. I would also recommend her to any others who do not want a religious service

  • 5 Shaun Brake 9th Dec 2019

    excellent service from a very nice family business.

  • 5 John Biggs 12th Oct 2019

  • 5 Lindsay Hilton 4th Oct 2019

    At a very sad time for all the family, the staff at Waters and Sons were patient, caring and supportive, with good advice and sensible suggestions to make the process less difficult.  Nothing was too much trouble for them (even very late changes to arrangements) and all our queries were dealt with immediately and sympathetically.  We would recommend their services unreservedly.  Thank you all.

  • 5 Alan Gates 15th Sep 2019

    From day one all the members of Waters and son's team were very helpful and always there for advice and support. All the family could not fault them and would recommend them to all.

  • 5 Alan Margetson 13th Aug 2019

    The service provided was acceptable to all the family in every way and left no room for complaint. We now look forward to receiving my wife's ashes for personal scattering in due course.

  • 5 John Ellery 27th Jul 2017

    A very good personal one to one service and kept well informed though the whole of the arrangements. The staff very kind and helpful. I can fully recommend a very professional service.

  • 5 Barry Hodgson 2nd Jun 2017

    Thank you Waters & Sons for all your help and assistance following the death of our son Andrew. Death is difficult to cope with, but when it is a son the impact is so much greater, Thank you for your professional service and support at our time of loss.

  • 5 Marlene Grove 2nd Jun 2017

    Would highly recommend Waters and Sons Funeral Directors, from the moment we called them we received nothing but a professional service. They are very prompt, very courteous and nothing was to much trouble and the speacial little touches they went to gave my husband the funeral he deserved. Marlene Grove

  • 5 Julia Russell 2nd Jun 2017

    Waters & son was absolutely brilliant from start to finish, as this a very emotional time for all they helped immensely to plan my mother in laws funeral, on the day everything went smoothly. After they sorted out the flowers to be made in to posies for the care home where mollie stayed which was a very nice touch. Many thanks to all involved before, on the day and after. 

  • 5 Marion Lockhart 1st Jun 2017

    In February, I had the unenviable task of arranging my late husbands funeral. Waters was the nearest Funeral Directors to where I live. I decided to go there, as I had not been very happy with the Funerals of close relatives in recent years, which were managed by other local Funeral Directors. From the moment I had a conversation about the Funeral with Simon and his colleagues at Waters, I knew I had made the right choice. They were all so professional, caring and compassionate people. On the day of the Funeral, everything went perfectly, right down to the last detail, nothing was left to chance and my husband had the most beautiful send off, thanks to Simon and colleagues at Waters. I can never thank them enough. I thoroughly recommend them, they are, far and away, the best.

  • 5 Richard Zabiela 31st May 2017

    Simon and his team went way over anything we could have expected during this extremely emotional time. We called a few companies in the area and chose Waters & Son on the warmth of the first telephone contact with them and from that moment on we were guided by them in an extremely professional and sympathetic way. Simon found Liza the celebrant for us and she was so patient and caring in putting the service together for us. Based on the service, professionalism and empathy we received from Waters and Son I would recommend them to everyone and would definitely use them again should the unfortunate need arise. Thank you Simon for all of your help and understanding during this difficult time.

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.
