Sue Dillon 8th Jun 2021

Heartfelt thanks to Sarah and her team at Dover for the wonderful caring service they provided in looking after our darling Dad, Ernest Roy Varrall (known as Roy).   Sarah's empathy, thoughtfulness and attention to detail helped us in our sorrow resulting in a perfect celebration of his life.  Cannot praise W J Farriers & Son Ltd. of Dover high enough. Recommend them wholeheartedly.

    My Mother and I cannot thank everyone at Farriers enough. My fathers funeral was perfect and we couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful day. Farriers organised everything and made sure it was stress free for the both of us. Extremely sympathetic to our wants and needs to give my dad the send off he deserved.  Wonderful service

    Not having a clue what to do, Sonia guided me through the process and made everything seem so easy at such a difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole process was extremely professional and efficient whilst always focussing on caring for everyone involved. THANKYOU Sonia & Farriers for taking me by the hand and making a very painful process so easy.

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.
