    During this sad time we were very grateful for all the reassurance and positive guidance we received from everyone at J Worley.  In particular Liz, who was both charming and helpful, and Mark at the crematorium who conducted proceedings in a very professional yet friendly manner. We were put at our ease at all times.  Thank you.

  • 5 Diana Lindsay 9th Jul 2020

    We knew J. Worley's by reputation, as a long established company with excellent credentials, and didn't hesitate in contacting them when the time came. We did not regret it. They were thoughtful, considerate, and patient in helping us make our decisions, and ensured that everything ran so very smoothly on the day.

  • 5 Yvonne Mason 26th Jun 2020

  • 5 Barbara Gilkes 25th Jun 2020

    The funeral was handled with efficiency and great care and consideration for the family, given the unprecedented circumstances.

  • 5 John Warner 22nd Jun 2020

    I would like to thank all the staff at J. Worley. They are very helpful and never minded how many time I rang to check something I had forgotten to ask.I am sure it's as hard for them during this situation as it is for the people arranging a loved ones funeral, lots of things had to be done differently which was hard but we understood why. It was hard mentally to arrange a funeral, with just one family member allowed in at a time, but appreciate that what is allowed with the Covid 19 virus and the social distancing which is for everyone's protection. The staff were extremely professional and respectful, from when the beginning when staff came to collect Mum's body through to the funeral. Sadly I have been to several funerals lately but the ones carried out by J. Worley always seem to have the personal touch and the service you get is always the same and stands out against some others. I would also like to comment of the Minister who took Mums funeral Mrs Bernadette French, again everything was done over the phone, which I worried about but I needn't have worried it was as if Bernadette had known Mum for years. It was very personal and said from the heart. She added little touches I had forgotten. I would like to Thank you all again for making it all go so smoothly. I would recommend you to anyone, you deserve the excellent 5 stars we have given you. Thanks again for everything. John and Sharon Warner

  • 5 Elaine McGill 11th Jun 2020

    Having never organised a funeral before, I felt very nervous about getting it right....but I needn't have worried at all. From the initial phone call with Pam, I felt totally reassured that she would guide me through everything at a pace that suited me. She was very empathetic, supportive and patient at a very difficult and sad time. I felt a weight off my shoulders after deciding on what we wanted for our dear Mum and was even made aware of things like, releasing doves and fingerprint jewellery as a way to remember Mum. Nothing was too much trouble and on the day, we drove past Mum's care home so that they could say goodbye and pay their respects, before following the route I asked for to finally lay Mum to rest. Even though we were very limited as to what we could do due to Covid 19, it still felt like a beautiful way to say goodbye, very dignified and Mark Worley was very understanding, professional and respectful. I would highly recommend Worley's, they were faultless and I am very pleased with their service. Thank you so much for everything and for making it a very gentle, worry-free experience. E McGill.

  • 5 Stephan Mills 11th Jun 2020

    This has been a very traumatic time for me and losing my wife after fifty two beautiful years left me totally destroyed. I arranged the funeral With J Worley funeral directors and I have to say that they were excellent from start to finish. They treated me and my family with the utmost dignity and my wife got excellent well practiced treatment as well. They showed total respect for my wife and family and I am deeply impressed with the solemnity the whole service was carried out. Thank you so much Mr Worley I would recommend your services to anyone. I wish you the best of luck for the future. Mr S A Mills.

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.
