    Fantastic service at a very sad time. Hope I will never need to use them again but would highly recommend them to others...

  • 5 Paul Millington 17th Mar 2019

    We cannot speak too highly of the attention and care that was paid to my mother’s funeral. Everything went perfectly according to plan. My mum had planned her own funeral and would be pleased with how it went. 

  • 5 Richard Miller 10th Mar 2019

    Very professional couldn’t fault Mark and the team. From the moment we met Mark the company understood our requirements and delivered them. Very nice smart cars also.

  • 4 Paul Burns 6th Mar 2019

    The team made the whole process very easy and were very helpful and friendly. On the day of the funeral everything went very smoothly and was handled very professionally. This is the second time we have used their services and would definitely recommend them. The only issue we had was whenever we telephoned the office it went to answer phone and despite leaving messages they were never replied to.

    Mark Worley replied
    Thank you for your kind words, and I'm glad that through speaking with Liz and I, you were able to help us clear up the confusion over the missing messages.

  • 5 Deborah Blockley 21st Feb 2019

    We used Worley for our fathers funeral 10 years ago . They were wonderful then and have proved to be again. Kind, considerate and caring . Our mother's funeral went without a hitch and Worley were professional throughout . I believe they were used for my grandparents funerals 40 years ago . We would definitely recommend them. Much better to use a small family company . Much better service . Thank you for helping myself and my sister through this difficult time .

    I would like to thank all at J Worley for helping us through a very sad time. Particularly Liz Buchanan who's advice during this time was so very helpful and she "held our hands" through the planning of the day etc.,

  • 5 Gillian Armstrong 29th Jan 2019

    As soon as I contacted J Worley in order to make the funeral arrangements I was taken care of every step of the way. From arranging to collect my husband’s body from the hospital to organising the Celebrant, making all the necessary arrangements at the Crematorium and looking after me personally every step of the way. I cannot praise them too highly. 

  • 5 Keith Ward 24th Jan 2019

    Their response immediately before Christmas was prompt and their advice and recommendations for printers and the person to lead the funeral service were perfect. All our requirements before and on the day were accomplished with friendly and quiet efficiency. They more than lived up to their reputation as an excellent independent local family business.

  • 5 John Stroughair 24th Jan 2019

    Very sympathetic service, all the details were taken care of with great comsideration.  The whole event went very smoothly and was exactly the funeral my mother would have wanted.

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.
