Excellent service from caring professionals. They dealt expertly with all the complications of a funeral during Covid 19 lockdown in a way that enabled us to follow my husband’s wishes,  yet minimised  stress and pressure on the family at such a difficult and sad time.

  • 5 Lee Gronow 4th Jun 2020

    Have only ever organised two funerals, and on both occasions have used Stephen P Gay. From first contact to the day of the funeral all staff have always been, kind, helpful and put me at ease. Stephen himself is the complete professional and i will always recommend their services.

  • 5 Linda Rita Camp 19th May 2020

    From my initial call, everything was executed with the utmost care and sensitivity.  The office staff were angels in arranging everything so very well. I cannot praise them all high enough. A special mention to Nina who kept me updated every step of the way. Thank you all so very much for making a very sad time easier to manage. Xx

  • 5 Lindsay Gordon 17th May 2020

    I have used Stephen P Gay's services for both my parents's funerals now. They were professional, empathetic & made the whole process as easy as possible. They worked hard during a pandemic and explained all the processes and changes and answered all my questions promptly. They were very reasonably priced too.

  • 5 Kathleen Chappell 11th May 2020

    Can’t thank them enough for all the help and guidance they gave. When we had a problem with putting the personal video recordings on the system they took over and sorted it out. Would definitely recommend them 

  • 5 Danielle Rogers 21st Apr 2020

    During these hard times with covid they still managed to provide an excellent service and still be compassionate. They can’t do enough for you. They made this hard time easier for me and everything on the day was perfect for my husbands day.  Thank you so much 

  • 5 Derek O'Neill 21st Apr 2020

    Throughout the entire process the staff were both pleasant and professional.

  • 5 Simon Wood 11th Apr 2020

    Excellent throughout. Thank you so much for the support and guidance during an exceptional time.

  • 5 Johannah Coombe 3rd Apr 2020

    Under very difficult circumstances Stephen P Gay Funeral Service really came through for us.  With so many of the usual funeral traditions closed to us (no wake etc.) and so few mourners allowed, the service became VERY important.  The sympathetic staff members & Stephen Gay himself were very very helpful and understanding.  The webcast & live feed enabled family members who couldn’t attend to feel included and gain closure. Thanks to all

  • 5 Amanda Temple 23rd Mar 2020

    We received excellent and friendly service from all at Stephen P. Gay Funeral Service Ltd. We were happy to be guided by their experienced and sympathetic staff in all matters relating to our mother's funeral arrangements and everything went smoothly on the day, despite the extraordinary circumstances affecting the whole country. 

  • 5 Martin Pyke 10th Mar 2020

    I cannot praise Stephen P. Gay (Longfield) more highly! Thank you so much to Nina, Nathalie and Pauline for all their hard work, help and advice and making a very difficult time far less stressful than I expected. The day of my Dad's funeral went very smoothly and the staff on the day were extremely efficient and professional. M. Pyke.

  • 5 Tanya Wall 1st Mar 2020

Everyone there were very professional , kind, respectful and always kept us all in the loop and nothing seemed to much to ask gor, they went above and beyond. All our relatives and friends who attended the Service were full of praise saying the service was so lovely and what our mum would have wanted. Thankyou all so much:) 

  • 5 Lorraine Sheehan 14th Feb 2020

    What an amazing company and a wonderful group of people! At a time when we couldn't even tell you what day of the week it was or remember our own name's, they were all very 'supportive' and guided us through the whole process which was exactly what we needed at that time. All staff where empathic, compassionate, kind and caring and we cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us. They did our Mum proud and we are so happy that they looked after her as well as us.....Thank you so much, from us all xxx

  • 5 David Jones 28th Jan 2020

    The staff handled the whole process with sympathy, care and attention which made it (for us) a much easier time dealing with a difficult and upsetting situation. Even though the end of life is inevitable, most of us are not prepared or very capable to face it. So, thanks to everyone for helping us through this time.

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?
