    Very friendly and excellent service. Everything they did was very professional and informal. Kept in contact with all updates, and nothing was too much trouble as long as mum's and our wishes were catered for. Took the stress out this very difficult time, and can't thank them enough.

  • 5 Tony & Tracy Barker 8th Jun 2021

    We have used the services of T. Allen Funeral Service on a number of occasions, with the recent ones being last year for my dad and more recently for my mum. Sarah and Glynis have been amazing. Not only are they sympathetic and empathetic but you can tell that they really care and want what is best for those being laid to rest, as well as the families that they leave behind. From day one, they took control and kept us informed of what was going on at all times. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them and we were constantly being reassured that everything was being taken care of. Also, the gentlemen that accompanied the Hearse and Limousine were all personable, whilst at the same time being respectful of the situation. They were punctual upon arrival at the house and took their time to explain what would happen and when.  In summary, I can’t fault the service provided by T. Allen Funeral Service and would highly recommend them to anyone that wishes to ensure that the funeral of their loved one will be taken care of affectionately and without any problems, giving them peace of mind.

    Appreciate everything, helped us to have a lovely service 

  • 5 Jai Pound 26th May 2021

    I cannot rate T. Allen funeral services high enough.  From beginning to end, all staff were amazing.  My family were treated with empathy throughout the whole process and felt comforted by the kind words of staff whilst guiding us through the arrangements for my father.  The undertakers and driver were extremely professional on the day of the funeral and my father was treated with completed dignity.  The life celebrant arranged by T. Allen made the day run smoothly and my father’s send off, whilst upsetting, could not have gone better.  Thank you to all at T. Allen and the life celebrant they arranged.

  • 5 Samantha Enticknap 23rd May 2021

    I would recommend T Allen Funeral Directors to all my friends and family, they are a family run business, they are very caring and make you feel welcome and at ease, with out their kindness and friendliness i don't think i would have made it through my husband prass. They were so kind. Thank you to all at T Allen funerals.

  • 5 Julie Ballantyne 12th May 2021

    T. Allen were caring from the moment we contacted them. I can not praise them enough for the help and support they gave us as a family 

  • 5 Stuart Barham 4th May 2021

    Could not fault the funeral service at all, they showed so much respect to my late wife and all of the family.  Thank you all so so much.

  • 5 Faye Howlett 3rd May 2021

    A truly respectful, seamless, highly professional service. All staff were impeccable and very polite, helping with our every need and making the funeral itself really special and memorable for our late Mum. From the very beginning making arrangements to dropping our family back home from the crematorium, we couldn’t fault anything. Thank you so much for making a very difficult day one which we can look back on with a warm heart. 

  • 5 Emma Armstrong 1st May 2021

    So happy with my dads funeral couldn’t off asked for a better funeral home to taken care off my dad  and are very helpful with information that I needed thank you for all your hard work 

  • 4 Vaughan Clark 13th Apr 2021

    I would suggest you give the following detail to a new client: email and telephone contact, to 1) Glenys 2) Richard Scott 3) Celebrant 4) Obitus 5) Donna 6) Robert Jacobs. As Glenys advised me...keep a separate file for each to avoid confusion. At the first instance I had Richard Scott and Scott Lowe emailing me and I was very suspicious about dealing with them, especially as I was in a confused, bereaved situation. As you have no bell or intercom on your front door, then leave a telephone number there, for the public to reach you. I came without an appointment, with Order of Service and £4,035 payment. There is no contact on the front door. What if I am a new customer wanting your services...the initial impression is not good. Otherwise, once I understood what I should be doing... Glenys and Sarah were very helpful and led me through a very complicated process. Admittedly, looking at dog picture coffins did not help. In the beginning, I thought I had plenty of time but surprisingly the time soon goes and I found myself sorting Order of Service, Eulogy, Printing in the last few days. Donna was excellent, as were those employees there on the day. You asked me for a review and I hope my comments are taken in the favourable spirit, given. Vaughan Clark

  • 5 Jan Luxton 13th Apr 2021

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.
