We had because of covid and other the fact martins son  couldn’t be at a funeral, as he lived in Canada, we decided on cremation only with a view later in the year to have a memorial lunch and to scatter martins ashes.  Solomon Lewis did not make this feel this was second best and made us feel this was the right decision and supported us all the way

We are a large family, but all of us were dealt with sensitivity and kindness. The stress and worry were taken away and I can’t praise them highly enough. Thank you all. Mary Jenner

Excellent service, I was a complete novice at organising funerals and they talked me through the process and explained everything with speedy replies whenever I had any queries. I'd definitely recommend them based on the service I received.

    I can not express enough the efforts and attention to detail that Mel put into ensuring my husbands funeral was of such a standard that I know he would of been proud to attend himself. No words can begin to describe the pain of loosing your husband at such a young age but Mel made it a little less painful and the whole process easy to navigate and ensure I was able to give my husband the very best in these strange times. No task was too much for her and she ensured everything was just right. After my husband being moved from the original provider I was anxious due to the original experience I had received but Mel was able to help me put that experience aside and ensure my husband was cremated with dignity, respect and love. The personal touches allowed his family and friends to feel close to him at a time when we all felt so lost without him. Thank you Mel everything you did was exceptional.

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?
