    Our family are very grateful for the care and respect we received when saying a last goodbye to our much loved mum

  • 4 Mary Hannaby 23rd Feb 2021

    The help and professionalism we received especially considering these difficult times of Covid as well as the usual stress of losing a loved one were excellent.

  • 5 Sarah Robinson 19th Feb 2021

    Thank you in particular to Doc, Ian and Liz!

  • 5 Dee Chury 17th Feb 2021

    I found all the staff at J Worley to be exceptionally compassionate and sensitive during a difficult and painful time for my family, especially Pam Bishop who couldn't have been more helpful and supportive with organising the arrangements. The gentlemen who carried my mother's coffin into the crematorium were very respectful as well. I mean this with the greatest respect, but I hope not to require your services again in the near future, but I would not hesitate to use J Worley again when the time arises. Thank you.

  • 5 Kelly Jeffrey 16th Feb 2021

    Professional , caring, helpful, and competitive price range.

  • 4 Michael Hollick 16th Feb 2021

    Worley's have now organised the funerals of both my parents. They are courteous, friendly and thoughtful. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services. The only reason to drop a star is that I was unable to view my mother's body due to Covid restrictions.

  • 5 Zoe Gerrard 15th Feb 2021

    Everything went smoothly and I found the staff friendly and helpful 

  • 5 Angela Fishburn 15th Feb 2021

    Very efficient sensitive service- thank you

  • 4 Allyson Perkins 15th Feb 2021

    A funeral during lockdown was never going to be easy. So many restrictions in place. I was helped and supported throughout by J Worley. They were efficient and eased the process considerably. There was no pressure to have a more elaborate funeral than I could afford or wanted. My only regret was the service at the crematorium felt rushed, particularly at the end,when we were encouraged to leave the chapel before I was ready and without being permitted to even listen to the final music in our own time. Then stood outside in the freezing cold for ages. Strange Covid times.

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.
