Kind, sympathetic and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.

Dwayne Lynch 30th Jul 2018

J.Worley were tremendous from start to finish. From the moment I walked in the door they knew instantly the right tone to deal with me at such a difficult time. Little things like a cup of tea made a big difference. I explained the smaller details to them and they grasped them and ensured they were key parts of the day. The day itself was managed to perfection and the the small touches (such as walking in front of the cars). I cant rate J.Worley enough for how they took on this event and delivered it with such dignity and class.

  • 5 William Harburn 17th Jul 2018

    Our first experience of having to arrange a funeral and J Worley made it much easier for us. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very kind and sensitive with us, including the build up and actual day of the funeral which ran incredibly smoothly and was very dignified. I would highly recommend them and their prices are very reasonable too.

    Its always a terrible time for all when a parent passes away. My Sister and I popped in to Worleys, without an appointment, and were seen by Sarah straight away. Offered coffee, thank goodness, and were treated with respect and kindness. Very efficient and professional and every thing was explained. She kept in touch too. The Funeral was a celebration of Mums life and Worleys were very professional and empathetic. I would highly recommend them.

    We chose Worley , because we believed that they would be professional and respectful in their handling of my mother's funeral. we were not disappointed from the moment that Sarah first welcomed us to the office, through the actual funeral , and onto the follow up paperwork and handling of charity contributions from mourners the service was first class.

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.
