From making the initial telephone call to ask if they could take care of my fathers funeral, they showed respect and sensitivity in a manner that was professional but also empathetic. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.

    I would like to say a big thank you to all the team at Bournes. Nothing was too much trouble and they were all so professional and caring, and it was really appreciated that Catherine took the time to sit and listen and let me chat on about my late mum. They made the whole process a much more personal affair. I would highly recommend Bournes to anyone who is in the upsetting position of needing a funeral director. Thanks again to Ben, Catherine, Hayley and everyone at Bournes.

    Thank you So much for making such a sad day easier for us. 

  • 5 Carole Dickens 18th Oct 2020

    I cannot fault the service provided by all the team at Bournes from the arrangements beforehand by the ladies in the office to Ben and the team on the day. They completely understood our needs and requirements and we never felt rushed. They listened and made helpful suggestions. They guided and supported us from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. Arranging a funeral during COVID Is difficult and daunting and Bournes could not have been more helpful and understanding.

  • 5 Andy Mayne 14th Sep 2020

    We can't rate Bournes highly enough. They were so professional, reassuring, kind, generous and thoughtful. These words aren't enough. They looked after our little girl so well. We can't thank them and rate them enough. We will always be so grateful. Thank you

  • 5 Gemma Ewing 13th Jul 2020

    I would highly recommend Bournes. Planning a funeral can be daunting and upsetting but Ben and the team at Bournes made the process run very smoothly. They went above and beyond to make what is a difficult time, as easy as possible for my family. On the day of the funeral the guys were professional and compassionate. Hopefully I won't need to use a funeral director again anytime soon but when I do I wouldn't go anywhere else.

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.
