  • 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.

  • 5 Michelle Sears 23rd Nov 2017

    Very professional. Kind. Made things as easy and smooth as possible for the family.  Used them before, wouldn’t go anywhere else. 

  • 5 Caroline Luck 21st Nov 2017

    Very supportive and sensitive. First time we had to organise a funeral and they guided us through every stage. They cared for the family and my Dad. Thank you for you kindness. 

  • 5 Theresa Hartland 21st Nov 2017

    An efficient, but sensitive service from the first contact and throughout.

  • 5 Jill Wellman 21st Nov 2017

  • 5 John Collins 21st Nov 2017

    Excellent support was provided by J Worley. All planned details were covered and reassurances given at the appropriate time either written or by phone to ensure we were happy with arrangements.

  • 5 Ian Harris 21st Nov 2017

  • 5 Hilary Power 21st Nov 2017

    Everyone was so kind at Worleys and so helpful. Emma was very patient with all my questions and the funeral went without a hitch. Would highly recommend them.

  • 5 Ellen Morris 21st Nov 2017

    Sarah was fantastic from our first visit, very understanding and compassionate of our needs, on the day they guys were amazing, very helpful, smart and accommodating to the family bearers too etc. We think we would have done our dad proud, so that thanks goes to you guys too. If I were to have a complaint, on your donation page you put dads name down incorrectly, instead of Raymond Trevor Morris, you put Raymond Stephen Morris, that would be my only issue.

    Mark Worley replied
    Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry for the error with your father's name on the donation page. I have corrected this now. Mark Worley
  • 5 Mylene Tyler 21st Nov 2017

    I couldn't recommend j. worley more. Extremely pleasant staff. Extremely patient with all of our questions. They really made our difficult time easier for us. The whole process with them has been smooth and friendly. In the unfortunate scenario that I'll need to, I'll definitely be using them again. Hopefully not any time soon though. 5 stars. Excellent service.

  • 5 Stephen Holland 8th Nov 2017

    I was very impressed with the professionalism of everyone I encountered. I would thoroughly recommend their services to others. Everyone dreads funerals but J Worley's ensured the service passed without any problems. I can't thank them enough, a top rate service was provided.

  • 5 Sheila Stapleton 8th Nov 2017

    Professional service given with great care and respect. They provided great communication and excellent service. They gave us all the time we needed and guided us through the processes. This helped make our very difficult situation much easier and worry free of arrangements. Everything was as I wanted on the day of the funeral everyone was so nice and considerate. Thank you

  • 4 John Morse 7th Nov 2017

    Mostly excellent. Only slight annoyances are that we were not aware that cash donations are not accepted. So we now have to go and collect the cash and do the donation online ourselves, more annoying that you transported the cash from the Berkhamsted branch to the Hemel branch which is much harder for me to get to. The other thing was confusion in communication, I didn’t want to discuss arrangements and asked when first arranging the funeral that all communication was made with my daughters. However most calls were made to myself and when I said call my daughters it was explained to me it’s because I was paying for it and signed the agreement. So there were a few confusions as my daughters were in charge of all the arrangements. On the whole we were very pleased though. 

  • 5 Paul Rodwell 2nd Nov 2017

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.
