    Chittenden Funeralcare provided reasonably priced funeral services for my dad that were excellent from start to finish. The staff were informative, competent, sensitive and demonstrated very good attention to detail. Their approach inspired me with confidence that the funeral would go well. I would thoroughly recommend Chittenden Funeralcare!

    Excellent service, especially in the light of poor communications from the solicitors. Jane and Vanessa were extremely helpful and considerate, and Tom was also very good to talk to. In the end, I managed to get the Direct Funeral expense to be paid for out of Phil's account, as the solicitor had not any funds in their account. I had sorted all of Phil's banking and investments, paid for the death certificates and handed it all to them. Alas, the young lady who is 'on the case', ignored all that I had done, has not re-directed the mail or contacted any of his banks. It took me 20 minutes to arrange the payment for the funeral, as the bank had not had had any communications from the solicitors as regards taking over the account in the light of them being executors and trustees. They are just money grabbing leeches and that is the politest expression that I can say about their working practice! The person dealing with the 'case' only works a couple of days a week, it appears, and was taking annual leave from the 17/12 to the 04/01, after which I believe she said that she would be taking maternity leave and passing it over to someone else! They are nothing but licenced bandits! Happy New Year!

    The care and guidance of Chittendens (Hythe) for our fathers funeral was exemplary. At a difficult time we were gently helped to make decisions that proved perfect for the celebration of our fathers life and made what could have been a truly sad day into a joyous one. Many thanks to you all.

    Vanessa was excellent dealing with my Mothers funeral. And Tom was very helpful on the telephone.

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.
