  • 5 Ann Hart 25th Oct 2019

    This is the second time I have used Worley's in under a year. Liz happened to have handled both arrangements. My brother and now my husband. She has such compassion and was very supportive during the arranging of my husband's funeral. The day itself was handled with care, compassion and dignity. I would recommend them without hesitation. Thank you for carrying me through 2 very difficult times in my life.

    I found everyone very helpful when my mother died recently. As I had to travel up from Devon to arrange everything it was quite daunting but with Pam’s help I was able to sort the arrangement’s for the funeral the same day.  My mother’s funeral was held last week and I was very pleased with what had been arranged.

    Worleys have been very supportive in the whole process from my very first phone call to them after the loss of my mum. Pam Bishop answered the call to me that day and has been there still 4weeks on, everything was taken at my pace. As a family we have used Worleys for all our passed loved ones. I can say with confidence that you could not be in a more supportive and understanding funeral directors.

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.
