myself and my family can't express how much we appreciated all the help we received from both Chloe and Jackie, nothing was too much for them. they also assisted with my dads funeral only 18 months ago, and again, nothing was too much trouble for them. my mum was made to look beautiful for her final journey and we were allowed to spend as much time as we wished with her and visit as often as we wanted, up to the point i closed viewing. i would not hesitate in recommending these 2 remarkable ladies and Gillivers to anyone who asks thank you to everyone at Gillivers, you all go above and beyond x

Chloe and Jackie dealt with everything in a very professional and relaxed  atmosphere and kept us up to date with all the arrangements throughout a very difficult and sad time.  Thank you both for all your help ladies. Best wishes Sue and Louisexxx

    I found Gillivers funeral services excellent in every way right from when Mary past away they were very professional the way they took her body away to await for me to make further arrangements. When I called at the funeral parlour I was made at ease and helped me at this difficult time to make all the arrangements needed for the funeral. I was helped on the day  by very professional people who helped me though the hole of the sevice I am very grateful for every one concerned. Thank you all very much.

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.
