As soon as I contacted J Worley in order to make the funeral arrangements I was taken care of every step of the way. From arranging to collect my husband’s body from the hospital to organising the Celebrant, making all the necessary arrangements at the Crematorium and looking after me personally every step of the way. I cannot praise them too highly. 

Keith Ward 24th Jan 2019

Their response immediately before Christmas was prompt and their advice and recommendations for printers and the person to lead the funeral service were perfect. All our requirements before and on the day were accomplished with friendly and quiet efficiency. They more than lived up to their reputation as an excellent independent local family business.

John Stroughair 24th Jan 2019

Very sympathetic service, all the details were taken care of with great comsideration.  The whole event went very smoothly and was exactly the funeral my mother would have wanted.

  • 5 Denise Steers 5th Jan 2019

    Have used their services twice in the last 5 months. Both times they gave me a service that was faultless, from the office staff, who are kind and considerate to the men on the day who performed their duties with the utmost respect. I would give them a score of 10 out of 10 and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is in the unfortunate position to need to cremate or bury a loved one. Denise S. Hemel Hempstead

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.
