Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

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.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Excellent service from the start from the Beckenham Branch.I and my family really appreciated everything Nicholas and the team did to accommodate our wishes with  professionalism and compassion. Also introducing us to other services to ensure Dad’s funeral was perfect and personal to us. A special mention to Victoria whose attention to detail was outstanding together with her lovely calming manner organising funeral mass, committal and burial. It made a difficult period bearable for which we will always be thankful . With gratitude and heartfelt thanks Bridget Huxley

Pauline at the Godstone parlour has been exceptional throughout the whole process of guiding me through organising my Fathers funeral. Pauline was always there to advise and comfort me when I needed it. Such a horrible emotional time but certainly helped by working with a lovely, courteous and compassionate lady. Thank you Pauline. On the day of the funeral all the staff, especially Robert, were very courteous and polite. Stoneman Funeral Service is a lovely Company to have look after you at a time of need.

Nick and the team organised my father's funeral at Beckenham Crematorium recently. They were unbelievably helpful. Deciding on the crematorium, the programme, the celebrant, the webcast, the grave and all the other details were made so much easier by Nick's gently cheerful, friendly and open demeanour. Nothing is too much trouble, and saving money is all in the package. He also recommended a celebrant, Jo Napthine as suitable for our programme who helped us develop a beautiful celebration of my father's life and then led it for us. The last tribute to my father by all all the family was a positive experience none of us will forget, including those who watched from home because of Covid. I could not ask for a better funeral to say goodbye to my dad.
