Maidstone Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

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.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

The day of the funeral could not have been any smoother and my Dad would have been delighted!  A truly wonderful send off for him! I have always used John Weir in the past for the simple reason that I can entrust them with finer details to help make a very stressful day go well.  Again they did not disappoint! A special mention goes to Les Atterbury who was my main contact.  He was extremely helpful and put great effort into finding the right music tributes.  His attention to detail and communication was exceptional and this ultimately helped towards a difficult day being a success.  I would also like to add that on the day Les’s colleagues were very professional and Amanda very supportive. Thank you all very much…you did us proud! Nigel Fox (on behalf of all the family)

What an incredible funeral for Vince. With the help of Les at Gillingham I was able to plan each part of the funeral service to my exact requests. Helped also by Amanda to finalise details for a military funeral and committal service. The conductor and his team took care of family and friends and guided the mourners through every step. Many thanks.
