  • 5 Jessica Beszant 7th Jun 2020

    Richard and his team have been excellent from the get go. We went in with our dad planned all the funeral and Richard was there to advise us where needed. After our dad passed away he was nothing but professional and the team and explained everything we needed to know. I'm glad my dad chose Richard to do his funeral as there is no one better. I would highly reccomend Richard Ward Funeral Services as they are a small business they dont get the recognition they deserve. Thanks Richard and the team.

  • 5 Iain Kelly 3rd Apr 2020

    From start to finish Richard Ward Funeral Services were absolutely amazing, they were recommended to us initially and i will be recommending them to others.

  • 5 Dave Garrard 27th Feb 2020

    We were told that Richard Ward Funeral Directors were "the best in the business." We now know this compliment was fully justified. We dealt primarily with Helen and, to a lesser extent, Richard - but they are, of course, part of a team. They dealt with out funeral in a sensitive, caring, compassionate, efficient and highly professional manner. It was a very difficult time for us, but we were guided through the process in a very supportive way. I would also like to compliment the celebrate chosen to manage the service, Keith Charlton. He struck the right mood at the service and delivered a very perceptive and moving eulogy. I really could not recommend this team more highly. They are, quiet simply, the best.

  • 4 John Baker 11th Feb 2020

    A very good service. We felt very welcome and well looked after. All our requests were catered for. Communication was easy and responsive. The flowers were particularly good. The order of service was well produced. Everything was conducted in a sensitive and professional manner.

  • 5 Julie Baker 9th Feb 2020

    The team at Richard Wards were so very thoughtful and thourough in the preparations for the funeral. The attention to detail was excellent and the flowers were amazing. Thank you

  • 5 David Haigh 27th Jan 2020

    Everything I could possibly have wanted from a funeral services company. Personal, respectful, caring help. Efficient & organised with attention to every small detail. Also excellent value. Helen and her team were simply superb, before and on the day. Highly recommended without hesitation.

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.
