  • 5 Nicholas Tallett 17th Apr 2018

    Both my sister and I felt this company handled my mother's funeral in a very professional way. We were limited to when the funeral could take place due to various reasons but they were very helpful and managed to arrange it on the required date. Every thing went as expected on the day and we would be happy to recommend them.

  • 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.

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?

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.
