Alvin and Hitchcock were excellent in every way! Nothing was too much for them! From the reception/ admin to the drivers. Everything was perfect. Was put at ease about any queries we may have had. Most things were sorted for us. The most I had to do was pick up the phone once or twice. They were personal and discreet when needed to be. And so understanding. Love them and would recommend them without thinking about it!!!! xx

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.
