    From my very first contact on the morning of Alan’s death right through to the funeral and beyond, everything was expertly handled with care and compassion by professional staff but with a very personal touch.  I was extremely satisfied with the service I received.  Thank you.

  • 5 Karren Niblett 3rd Mar 2021

    Mel was very helpful and nothing was too much for her. She showed compassion and empathy towards us from start to finish.  The day of the funeral, the gentlemen managing the cortège were very kind, courteous and went that extra mile for us.  I have used Lewis Solomons in the past and I couldn’t fault them in any way and thank them so much for the support given through a very difficult time. 

  • 5 Sharon Climpson 2nd Mar 2021

    Thank you to Lewis Solomon for the beautiful way you handled our Dads funeral. The pall bearers were marvellous and coffin drape and flowers in the hearse were displayed perfectly. In these difficult times it was heartwarming to be able give our Dad a lovely send off. The celebrant Sue Viner was also very kind and compassionate. Highly recommended

  • 5 Joanne Holloway 3rd Feb 2021

    Our lovely Dad passed away over Christmas, Lewis Solomon were caring, kind & gave us the information we needed to help us to understand the process of getting Dad from the hospital & his death registered. They looked after of him but also of us in the weeks leading up to the funeral service. On the day they were kind & caring without being overwhelming. It was of course about our Dad but it was also about representing us & easing us through a very sad & difficult afternoon. The level of service was professional & compassionate which we very much appreciated.

    Three of us had been selected as Pallbearers for my Father In Law's funeral which we held as a huge honour. Of course, short of reading on the Internet, we had no idea of where we needed to be at any given time. From arriving at Lewis Solomon's in the morning, we were treated with the greatest respect, compassion and empathy. I have to admit I almost felt like royalty, such was the service we were given. David, on behalf of Lewis Solomon, advised and ensured we were able to follow by car without a problem and when it was time, explained to us where we needed to be as Pallbearers and instructed us as to how to respectfully and carefully carry my Father In Law to and from the Chapel and finally to his place of rest. Because of how David, his colleagues and Lewis Solomon looked after us, we all were able to say farewell and achieve some form of closure to a chapter in my Father In Law's life. David, his colleagues and Lewis Solomon were simply professional. Thank you to everyone that was there with us on that day. Thank you.

    Excellent all-round. The family all appreciate your services, in particular Mel and David who we interacted most with. This was a very difficult time for us, made even more by the Covid19 situation. Mel and team ensured we could concentrate on grieving and mourning rather than worry about any of arrangements themselves. Going jnto Tier 4 just before the funeral was horrifying. Our queries about the impact on Dads funeral were dealt with on Saturday evening. Dad had a dignified service, which your team enabled.

  • 5 Jane Theodoulou 26th Dec 2020

    So helpful and caring during a difficult time. Jane

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.
