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.

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.

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.

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.

Read more: How to arrange a funeral

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.

Read more: What are disbursements

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.
