Purley Funeral Directors


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.

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.

This is the second time my family have used Garner's on Tolworth Broadway, Surbiton. Once again, they have provided an excellent service. Funeral Arranger, Liz Rochester has been extremely kind and helpful, which made arranging my mum's funeral so much easier for me. She was always there at the end of the phone to advise me or to answer my questions or to email me any information. On the day, Funeral Director, Michael phoned me in the morning, to confirm the arrangements and he met the family at the crematorium. Everything went smoothly, which meant a great deal, especially during the current Covid situation, which has made things more difficult. Many thanks to you all. I would thoroughly recommend Garner's to anyone.

Found to be excellent and took the pressure off us by arranging everything for us. Everything went smoothly and would not hesitate in recommending their services. All our family were most grateful for all their help. Ray Gunson.
