  • 5 Mrs Johnson 3rd Sep 2017

    I can't thank you all enough for helping to make a really stressful time easier for us all. Special thanks to Julie at Mablethorpe for helping us out so much with the arrangements, Suzie at Alford, for supervising the visit so well and for keeping the small urn that my sister in law fell in love with, and lastly but not least Andrew, who is obviously, "The Man In Charge of it all" Your caring approach to your work and attention to detail is second to none and was much appreciated. Thank you, to the pallbearers at my brother in laws funeral and all the supporting staff too, who obviously work behind the scenes and who we don't see when arranging a funeral. Kind Regards Jean Johnson

    David Camm replied
    Thank you for your kind words, I will pass them onto all the staff involved. Regards David Camm (Branch Manager).

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.
