  • 5 Carrie Blackett 12th Feb 2021

    Very empathetic, professional and personal from start to finish. Thank you so much for making the extremely sad loss of my mum as bearable as possible, especially in such difficult times.

  • 5 Ian Bowes 12th Feb 2021

    A very professional job done under extreme circumstances well done to all the staff I dealt with.

  • 5 Estelle Evans 12th Feb 2021

    From the initial contact to make arrangements for the funeral, through each step to the service itself, we had sympathetic support and all of the help that we needed at a very difficult time. We cannot praise the staff at J.Worley enough for their kindness and efficiency.

  • 5 Dennis Robinson 12th Feb 2021

    Very compassionate and professional 

  • 4 Alan Andrews 12th Feb 2021

    Highly recommended having dealt with both of my late parents.

  • 5 Sharon Durham 12th Jan 2021

    Liz Buccanan was the lady who helped me every step of the way, she went, in my opinion, above and beyond help, not once did she make me feel I should 'hurry up' with any decision I had to make, truly exceptional person, if you need anyone to be so caring non judgemental Liz is your lady.

  • 5 Annette Burgess 10th Dec 2020

    The family was very satisfied with the service under the circumstances of covid.I was so happy with Liz and the arrangements. Couldn’t fault Worley’s at this sad and sensitive time. With thanks from the Potton family 

  • 5 Simon Dove 28th Nov 2020

    I can't fault J. Worley. They organised and conducted my mother's funeral with quiet, friendly and sympathetic efficiency. They explained everything clearly, helped us to make the right decisions and kept us informed at every stage. On the day, the timing was precise, but relaxed, and we were gently guided through the funeral. One hears scare stories about the cost of funerals and no one wants to talk about the cost or appear to be going for a cut-price option, but I thought their prices were very reasonable. I heartily recommend them.

  • 5 Marie Capes 26th Nov 2020

    I have had no experience of dealing with funeral arrangemnts in this locality. Following my husband's unexpected passing, my brother and I selected Worley as the undertaker as, from the website information, it seemed closest in character to the family undertaker we have used for our bereavements in Cumbria. The team at Worley have surpassed my expectations, with the level and quality of their service, the sensitivity of the their firm's people to the trauma of family bereavement and the clarity of their communications. The professionalism, the courtesy and the understanding extended is much appreciated at this terrible time in our family life, all further complicated by the difficulties presented by the pandemic. I am pleased to recommend them.

  • 5 Carl Bywater 23rd Nov 2020

    Top rate family run business offering an efficient and well managed quality service at very keen affordable prices. The staff were all very professional and kind and in particular a special mention for Laura who expertly guided me through out the whole process.

  • 5 Nick Stone 15th Nov 2020

    Recently my dad passed, and seeing as I had the kids I phoned the first funeral directors I could find which happened to be J Worley, the service received was outstanding and couldnt thank pam or liz enough for all there support during a hard time. Due to covid there is alot of restrictions in place which is hard enough but the fact they also have to turn around and say no to things isn't easy however the professionalism from all at J Worleys was very appreciated thank you again to pam and liz also the guys who turnt up on the day.

  • 4 Shirley Howe 15th Nov 2020

    A very good experience given the difficult circumstances we are currently in...

  • 5 Jeanette Burden 15th Nov 2020

    Excellent friendly and efficient service. Everything was spot on. They were in contact throughout the whole process and kept us well informed of the procedures in place due to Covid restrictions both prior to and on the day of the funeral.

  • 5 Anthony Hadaway 15th Nov 2020

    perfection as always. very pleased wth the service provided

  • 5 Julie Palmer 14th Nov 2020

    Everyone from Worley's have been so helpful! It's such a difficult time losing someone so close but to have the added pressure of the pandemic makes it even more difficult. The usual face to face meeting and limited numbers etc.. but I can only give credit and say thank you to you all. Everyone was so well organised and nothing was too much trouble. Magda was one amazing lady, she called me her little Niece! She talked about Worley's quite often and wanted to arrange her own funeral but wanted to be able to talk to Mr.Worley to see if he remembered working at the co-op with her husband Nandor together.. many years ago! It didn't happen but the fact Mr Worley did mention to one of the ladies working in the office that he did remembered him! She really will be sadly missed but her passing couldn't have been more peaceful, at home, no pain, with me and another neighbour holding her throughout her journey. Thank you Mr Worley and to everybody that works at your company. It's given me great solace knowing Magda is now at peace with Nandor and son Steven. Kind regards Jules

  • 5 Timothy George 13th Nov 2020

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.

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?
