Although we never had a face to face meeting to go over mum's funeral arrangements, chatting to Liz on the phone was just as good. I felt listened to, and everything was explained clearly and thoroughly. The celebrant that was recommended was very professional and again, listened to all I had to say.

Matthew Howe 5th Oct 2021

    Superb service, from when we first contacted them until the funeral had taken place they could not have been more helpful and professional. I would personally like to thank Pam who was there for us to answer any questions we had, and nothing was too much trouble. Our family has always used J. Worley Funeral Directors and will continue to do so. Thank you all so much

  • 5 Amanda Muckett 16th Aug 2021

    I couldn’t have hoped for a better service. J. Worley exceeded  my expectations, making a difficult time a little less stressful. The staff were compassionate, professional and efficient in equal measure. Thanks to all involved. 

  • 4 Heather Powley 3rd Aug 2021

    My mum had stipulated in her will that she wanted her funeral to be entrusted to J Worley: they have a good local reputation and, indeed, were the company she chose to manage my dad's funeral more than 30 years before! At all stages they were helpful and empathetic, and their attention to detail on the day made a difficult process much easier and less stressful than I had been expecting.

  • 5 Ronald Swindells 2nd Aug 2021

    Funeral personnel were thoughtful and respectful. Cars were clean and comfortable 

  • 5 Andrew McIvor 31st Jul 2021

  • 5 Ian Hamer 22nd Jul 2021

    My wife's funeral arrangements were handled with dignity, care and efficiency. I cannot thank them enough.

  • 5 Martine Roberts 19th Jul 2021

    At a difficult time, once appointed, Worley’s  took all the worry of organising our mums funeral from our shoulders, leaving us to come to grips with her loss. In all areas, office, collection, drivers and bearers, they could not have been more respectful, professional and dignified while putting us at our ease through the whole process. I truly would not hesitate to recommend them, and thank them most heartily for their service. 

  • 5 Ian Howes 16th Jul 2021

    From the beginning, the staff at Worley’s were caring, compassionate and professional in guiding us through all the necessary steps for mum's funeral and cremation. Nothing was too much trouble. We gratefully appreciated the dignity with which they executed their part of the funeral service and would strongly recommend them to anyone.

  • 4 Jean Gosling 15th Jul 2021

    My grateful thanks to John and Mark Worley and all the staff for the way in which they handled my husbands funeral on the 6th July 2021. It all went very smoothly on the day and Mark was very courteous in the way he guided us. The florist they recommended, Amanda Jane and the printers of the Order of Service, Adriana of OH9 both provided an excellent and compassionate service .

  • 5 Neil Heron 15th Jul 2021

    Fantastic service from start to finish. Nothing was to much for them. Always keeping you informed all the way.

  • 5 Laura Guest 14th Jul 2021

    Kind, empathetic and very, very respectful to my Father’s body and to us as his relatives at every stage of the process. Cannot recommend them highly enough and have seen this consistently across several other funerals where J. Worley’s have been present, which was why we came back to them for my Father. They’ve provided wonderful services at a very difficult time. 

  • 4 Jacqueline Ellis 14th Jul 2021

    I was happy with the way they treated my late partner.

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.
