  • 5 Neil Aitken 16th Feb 2021

    On behalf of myself and my sister Alison, I would like to say how much we appreciated Viner & Sons assistance and guidance in relation to my mother’s funeral and, in particular, the patient efforts of yourself and Nathan, especially given the complications to the arrangements thrown up by the pandemic.  Nothing was too much trouble and all points arising were dealt with thoughtfully and kindly, and all arrangements worked perfectly. As I think I told you, Viners arranged my father’s funeral in 1986.  For your interest, I attach a copy of my letter to Mr Viner of July of that year.  What I said there I am happy to repeat in relation to my mother’s funeral.  It is a considerable tribute to you, Nathan and your team that the firm maintains the very high standards set on that earlier occasion, thirty five years ago. My sister and I are very grateful to you all. With many thanks and best wishes, Neil Aitken

  • 5 Sue Patey 15th Feb 2021

    Clare took all our requests, changes of mind, and my confusion as I was arranging two funerals at the same time, in her stride and everything was arranged exactly as we wanted. Nathan was also very attentive and helpful during the ceremony. Thank you

  • 5 Val Patterson 9th Feb 2021

    We could not fault the service provided by Dan and the team at Viner & Sons. Dan looked after us so well with care and compassion. We knew we could turn to him at any time to help us. His attention to detail was second to none and it enabled us to hold a beautiful service for Colin despite the current times. Special mention for Claire too - thank you.

  • 5 Andrea Bullman 4th Feb 2021

    Dan and the Viners team were brilliant. We had never planned a funeral before; and with Covid as well, this seemed especially daunting. Dan was always on hand, and with his attention to detail, my father's funeral could not have been in safer hands. Mourners at the ceremony afterwards remarked how perfect it was; and a fitting tribute to my father. Thank you so much.

    Professional, considerate and kind.

  • 5 Louise Pepper 31st Jan 2021

    Nathan and the team were outstanding throughout. We cannot thank them enough and cannot fault their service.

Thank you to you all at Viner & Sons for making such a terrible ordeal that little bit easier.

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?
