Not only thoughtful and caring but doing so much to ensure they overcame the mistakes made by Medway Coroner. Without Nicky's constant enquiries and knowledge, my husband's funeral would have been cancelled. Cannot fault them. Felt exactly the same after they handled my mum's funeral.

Susan Barnett 24th Apr 2020

Everything went smoothly and with dignity. At a different time, I felt there was excellent support.

Judith and Ian Jewiss 4th Apr 2020

Thank you for all of the help and support you gave to the family during a difficult time. The support we received as the circumstances surrounding the format of the funeral changed was second to none and you were always available at anytime to answer any of our questions.

  • 5 Deniece Hardy 8th Feb 2016

    Solomans have made such a difference to us. Very professional from the moment I walked through the door. Every single person I have met at your establishment has been polite, considerate and understanding. Nothing was ever to much trouble. Great communication from Nicky helped keep me organised. All emails answered swiftly even some late at night and weekends. I felt they went above the call of duty. You made me feel that Andrew was in safe care, that he treated with the upmost dignity. You met our family, listened to our stories of Andrew. You gave us a shoulder to cry on and helped us through this tragic time. We are truly greatful. Thankyou from all of us Miss Deniece Hardy

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.
