From start to finish, T Allen handled Dad’s funeral with respect and sensitivity. Communication was excellent at the planning stage, and the pall bearers and conductor were kind and friendly on the day. (Thank you to them for wearing the Gillingham FC ties for Dad!)  The media company, Obitus, which T Allen use to produce the music, photo tribute and video was also very professional.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

    At a time when we were at our lowest all the staff at T Allens were extremely kind understanding and patient with us, They were never in a rush, could not do enough to support us and made organising my Dads funeral as simple as it could have been. We were never put under pressure to make decisions and from start to finish everything ran smoothly. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you to all the staff there for supporting us through this difficult 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?

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.
