Poetic Endings (especially Louise) were the most sensitive, helpful and friendly funeral directors who guided us through a very sad time. We could not visit the office due to social distancing and all our arrangements were by phone or email but Louise helped to make this process run smoothly. The funeral service went extremely well on the day despite restrictions at the crematorium. Poetic Endings helped us through our sad loss from the beginning through to aftercare.

Karen Adler 24th Feb 2020

We couldn’t have wished for a more personal and caring service than that provided by Clare at Poetic Endings. Everything was well communicated, she took time to listen to us and advise us, and helped to make a terribly sad time into a memorable and fitting occasion.

    Sensitive and practical, they worked with my ideas to ensure a service which was exactly what I was aiming for, tactful but always open and friendly. Completely reliable, thought of all the little details beforehand and on the day. So nice to deal with women too, you felt they were really aware at all times of how emotional the event was.

    The whole process from the initial meeting to the actual cremation was handled professionally, efficiently and with great sensitivity. The service itself was exactly what we wanted and our friends and relations commented very favourably. Poetic Endings did an excellent job and I would have no hesitation in recommending them highly.

    Louise Winter replied
    Thank you so much Michael. With our very best wishes to you and your family.

    Poetic Endings are a wonderful company doing an amazing job in what must be a difficult space. The staff are sensitive, kind and thoughtful. They all exhibit such a high level of professionalism and each display great emotional intelligence. Their approach is supportive and collaborative and they are all so gentle. I cannot recommend them more highly.

  • 5 Jade Berman 7th Feb 2020

    Louise and the rest of her team were absolutely amazing! She was patient, empathetic and resourceful. This meant that I could create the day that my dad deserved, and I could honour his wishes of natural burial! Louise recommended an amazing celebrant who compiled and conducted an extraordinary service. People that came along even commented that they wanted her to conduct their funeral. I would not hesitate in recommending poetic endings.... They went above and beyond the norm, in order to make the process as easy and personal as possible. I cannot thank them enough.

    Louise Winter replied
    Thank you so much Jade.

    Louise Winter replied
    Thank you so much Philip. It was an honour to be able to help you and your family.

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.
