    Sarah dealt with the business very sympathetically, other than Worley's being stuck in the dark ages regarding payment the day went extremely well. Couldn't have asked for any better.

  • 5 Christopher De Lisle 3rd Apr 2018

  • 5 Stuart Burden 20th Mar 2018

    Having never had to arrange a funeral before, J Worley were sensitive to our needs and guided us through every step from initial visit to their offices right through to the end of the service with compassion and utter professionalism.

  • 5 Julie Sims 19th Mar 2018

    In a very stressful time we were guided sympathetically through the process by Emma. We were kept in the loop at all times. Also we had requested fingerprints to be taken for memorial jewellery but they were unable to obtain these successfully but on my request they managed to get a toe print. Bit unusual i know but nothing was too much trouble. So impressed i am now going to prepay my funeral with Worleys ad i know i will be looked after. Thank you for getting us through a horrible time.

  • 5 Robert Batchelor 19th Mar 2018

    Fantasticservice from start to finish.

  • 5 Bryan Hawkes 8th Mar 2018

    As always the family was kept informed in a sympathetic and dignified way. As a family we were pleased that Mr Worley came out of retirement for our mothers funeral, she would have been touched by such a gesture.

  • 5 Martin Bradford 1st Mar 2018

    From the first contact with Worleys through to the completion of my aunt's funeral, the service they delivered was absolutely excellent. Emma stepped in immediately and guided us through the various options, helping us choose. She was sensitive and supportive at all times, making suggestions based on her experience that would help to smooth the process and lead to a funeral that fitted my aunt's personality perfectly. After the funeral, all the mourners remarked that it had been a beautiful service. I was also pleasantly surprised by Worley's prices. We are bombarded with adverts on television warning that funerals are very expensive and encouraging us to take out insurance policies. My aunt had none, but the final bill was very reasonable.

  • 5 Steven Manly 22nd Feb 2018

    From the minute we walked through the door at J Worleys to the day of my Dads funeral the service was sympathetic, professional and caring.We were very happy we chose Mr Worley and his excellent staff

  • 5 Denise Wardale-Smith 21st Feb 2018

    A big thank you to J Worley for making a stressful situation so easy and seamless. From the moment my sister and I went in to organise our mum’s funeral they were so professional and friendly, especially Sarah who was always on hand to answer any question and kept us up to date with things as and when they were happening.

  • 5 Audrey Potton 11th Feb 2018

    Very caring and very professional

  • 5 David Moore 9th Feb 2018

    We were provided with an excellent service at J Worley. Emma was friendly and helpful.

  • 5 Trevor Bayliss 2nd Feb 2018

    Quite superb, both the arrangements before and on the day could not have been better. I have never made critical comment on anything before this, however, I am very pleased of this opportunity to say that the people at Worley's were completely understanding, sympathetic and very expert. Exactly the requirement for me, as I simply had no idea what to do. All who attended my dads funeral were moved to comment how fitting the arrangements were and how well the day went. My fondest regards to all the folk at Worley's. Trevor Bayliss

  • 4 Bryan Maynard 29th Jan 2018

  • 5 Barrie Wiles 28th Jan 2018

    We were extreamly pleased with the service we received from you all during a sad time for our family. All the Staff treated us well with a friendly and caring manor. Vaughan Allen was so genuinely friendly and caring with a professional way of turning a sad day into one we will all remember with fond memories. We had so many people saying what a memorable occasion he made it. We can't thank him enough for that.

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?
