At a time when your mind is so preoccupied J Worley will help you sort out what you need to do and try to accommodate your requests and at such a sad occasion when the funeral has arrived you are under pressure, upset, emotions are high, relatives arriving everyone wants to talk to you, J Worley gently guides you through the process and are there to lean on for advise, we only use J Worley as we know the service that we get will be nothing but excellent. It's not just the funeral it's the people in the office that are so lovely and efficient, when you haven't done something they take over and complete it for you. I visited my father in the chapel of rest he was 90 years old when he passed, I was so happy to see how marvelous he looked, so peaceful and relaxed.It was so comforting.

    J.Worley Ltd handled my Brothers funeral with care and efficiency and not living in the Herts area to find Funeral Directors was not an easy task. We definitely made the right choice under difficult circumstances for us as a family and highly recommend their services.

  • 5 Andrew Wright 3rd Jan 2018

    At such a sad and difficult time, I could not have asked for any better service, help and advice that I received from JWorleys. Sarah helped me through every step of the way in such a helpful and respectful manner. I really felt my mum was cared for, and I was allowed plenty of time to visit her in the chapel of rest. The arrangements went smoothly and I know there is after care for me if I need it.  I’m thankful to them for being caring and professional, and treating me in a dignified and respectful way.

    Shabby funeral parlour  Did the basics not particularly sensitive 

    Mark Worley replied
    Dear Mrs Davison, I'm sorry to hear that your experience with us did not meet your expectations, or indeed the expectations we have for the people who entrust their funeral arrangements with us. I have spoken with the staff who arranged the funeral for you and have reviewed the issues you raised to ensure that they are aware of them in future. Yours, Mark Worley.

  • 5 Bill Deaton 15th Dec 2017

    Unfortunately this is the second occasion within 12 months I have had to use J Worley to help with the passing of both my parents, the most recent Joyce. Everything J Worley do is achieved with a very high level of professionalism but with the utmost personal and caring attention for all the people/family involved in this sad time. I include every member of the staff from J Worley involved in the funeral through to the internment. I cannot thank them all enough for everything they all did to make this situation bearable. I would recommend J Worley to anyone.

  • 5 Richard Botten 24th Nov 2017

    To put it bluntly, as far as I am concerned, J.Worley have been brilliant. They were everything we needed when we were still trying to come to terms with the loss of a loved one, and the cups of tea were more than welcome. Thank you.

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.
