  • 5 Valerie Scarlett 16th Nov 2019

    From the first moment I contacted Pam I have received nothing but outstanding and professional service both from her and the company. Allan’s funeral was not straight forward initially due to the distance I was away and the difficulties of registering the death. However, Pam was always there for me; she has a wonderful compassionate manner and yet is efficient and knowledgeable. On the day, everything worked like clockwork, again with compassion and professionalism. All the staff at Worley’s made a difficult and sad situation much easier. Thank you so much.

  • 5 David Newton 14th Nov 2019

    We have used J Worley on two occasions in recent years. The service we received on both occasions was excellent, from first meeting to discuss arrangements through to the actual funeral. Would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

  • 5 Teresa Merrick 28th Oct 2019

    I found the service provided by Doc and Pam to be excellent. It was a very emotional time for my family and I, and the help and compassion shown was exemplary. I was given help and advice all the way through. All my questions were answered in a full caring and detailed manner. The funeral for my Dad went smoothly and it was a lovely ceremony all thanks to your wonderful lovely staff. I definitely received the 'wow' factor from the service given. I cannot rate them highly enough. I would not hesitate to recommend and use them in the future. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did and the kindness shown. From the collection of Dad from home to the collection from Worley's it was a first class service. Thank you so much kind regards Teresa Merrick x

  • 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.

  • 5 Linda Wood 3rd Oct 2019

    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. 

  • 5 Teresa House 28th Sep 2019

    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.
