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 Ruth Herbert 23rd Mar 2021

    From the very first contact with Glenys everything was done to make such a difficult time as straightforward as possible. Glenys phoned a couple of times just to check if I was coping and to ask if I needed anything. On the day, the Gentlemen that came were caring and respectful to us all. I felt they treated my husband with dignity and respect on his last journey. A heartfelt thanks to the team. Ruth

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.
