We were so impressed by how Worleys handled my father's funeral in the middle of lockdown. We can't thank them enough. Right from the lady who arranged for the collection of my Father from his care home on a Sunday evening , to the kind person who saw me to make the arrangements to the very smooth way everything was handled on the day of the funeral .Very sensitive and totally professional . five stars plus !!

  • 4 Michael Young 30th Dec 2019

    Helped arrange my mother's funeral and were extremely professional and helpful at this difficult time.  They were on time for the funeral and kept us informed, due to a short delay and then had the crematorium prepared with the order of service. Very happy to recommend them. 

  • 5 James Lister 24th Dec 2019

    Shona at the Berkhampsted branch did all she could to make the process as painless as possible and I can't thank her and the team enough for the care they gave. Many thanks Nicola and the girls.

  • 5 Rosemary Crawford 3rd Mar 2019

    Lovely personal service. Thank you. We perhaps needed to discuss a retiring collection at the end of the funeral and how this needed to be dealt with, but we might not have been able to cope with any more information at the appointment to discuss the day.

  • 5 Janet Hughes 17th Feb 2019

    Everything from start to finish was excellent: the personal and considerate approach in the office as well as the efficiency and actual service given on the day of the funeral itself. Mr Worley and his colleagues were so friendly, calm, helpful  and reassuring. Thank you! I would give 11 out of 10! (Re the crematorium office...probably 7 out of 10)

  • 5 Karen Lambourne 12th Feb 2019

    We came to Worley to get a quotation after a ridiculous price was given to us by another directors. We had a few different special requirements for our Dads funeral one of them being a Saturday service, Shona went out of her way to get the staff to work on the Saturday and took care of everything extremely professionally. Nothing was too much trouble and she made us feel very comfortable and relaxed at the very difficult time we were going through. Thank you for delivering such a fantastic service and helping to fulfil the best possible send off for our dad, a send off he deserved!! Thank You, Jo Bradley.

  • 5 Alan Wilkin 27th Jan 2019

    Shona in the Berkhamsted office was very efficient and compassionate and we felt we were in good hands. Attention on the day was compassionate and not intrusive. Thank you.

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.

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.
