Kevin Spragg 26th Dec 2019

The first 2 funeral firms i contacted were full of false plastic compassion while trying to completely rip me off with hugely over priced costing. Rouse & Co where recommended to me. I called and was dealt with respect, honesty and a genuine warmth, the pricing was fair and on some extras I wasnt even charged. Professionally handled funeral. Mr & Mrs Rouse were brilliant, I cannot recommend them highly enough. Ty Rouse & Co

    I cannot praise Rouse and Co highly enough for their kindness and efficiency in looking after my deceased Uncle so respectfully and arranging all aspects of his funeral. Members of my family were very touched with the way the funeral went – they thought it was a beautiful memorial. Mark Rouse and his colleagues managed the coffin and hearse in a stately and dignified way, integrating my cousins into their team as family pall bearers, and then looking after my uncle's sisters and brother-in-law in the limousine. Mark also arranged for the expert production of the Order of Service, which included a number of photographs which had been reproduced remarkably well from some very old copies - the quality of the final product was outstanding. In addition, Mark recommended the florist who arranged the tribute of roses for my uncle’s coffin: we absolutely loved them and they were perfect in every way – everything we could have hoped for. Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my grateful thanks to Mark Rouse and his team. Their kindness, patience and expertise were hugely appreciated. They made a sad and traumatic process so very much easier, and gave me the confidence that at least in practical terms, everything would be all right on the day. And my uncle’s four elderly sisters were given the comfort that they had done right by their brother to the very end – something that would not have been possible without this amazing Funeral Director.

    Thank you Linda
  • 5 Gillian Kadish 7th Dec 2019

    To say Mr. Mark Rouse went “ above and beyond” to take care of my Mother’s funeral arrangements would be an understatement. The quality of service  extended to my brother and me  from Rouse and Co was EXCEPTIONAL. Mark was extremely kind and thoughtful and  he provided great reassurance and comfort that  all aspects of the funeral arrangements would be handled with dignity and compassion. I highly recommend Mark Rouse and  his company.

    Thank you Gillian and Jake

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.
