We couldn't of wished for more for our Mum. All aspects of the funeral arrangements were dealt with respect and understanding at this very sad time. A big thank you to Bernadette and Martin at south Chingford.

Lisa Bagley 27th Mar 2021

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Bernadette for the help and support provided leading up to Dad's funeral. It went very smoothly and for that we are most grateful. And huge thanks to Martin and team for such a dignified and professional service on the day, you made everything easy for us and were so very accommodating on what is such a difficult day. Everything was a bit of a blur and it feels like you can't really think straight on the day but with Martin's reassuring nature everything was covered/handled and again went so smoothly, we couldn't have asked for more. You are lovely people and very good at what you do. Thank you once again from all of us. Best regards, Lisa, Jenny & Richard PS. Fr David was wonderful PPS. Frank Sinatra 'My Way' was very fitting

    Unfortunately I've had occasion to use Harold Whites three time in the last few years - fortunately they have been amazing each and every time. The whole team is professional, helpful and eases you through the process at what is a very difficult time. Thank you to everyone there including Gary, Dianne, Ian and in particular Bernadette who pulls everything together.

  • 5 Beverley Craig 22nd Feb 2021

    Harold White dealt with my father's funeral a couple of months ago. I had no hesitation to go back to them when my mother passed away. Again, they did an excellent job. Many thanks to Martin, Bernadette and Alex Hall. Highly recommended

  • 5 Anita Williams 14th Feb 2021

    So pleased I chose Harold White Funeral Directors to take care of my Dad. From start to finish, dealing with this company was excellent and I appreciate all they did for me and my family. A special mention goes to Bernadette in the office - a lovely person, very efficient and genuinely compassionate. And top marks to Martin for coordinating and leading the funeral procession (including stopping at a couple of requested addresses en route). He and the drivers were very professional, respectful and courteous. Everything flowed like clockwork. Thank you very much, Gary and team.

Choosing Harold White was one of the best decisions and they made what is a very difficult time that bit easier. Highly recommend.

    Thank you Gary for an excellent service that you have provided for my late husband Alanzo Anthony Smith. We were very touched by your compassion and professionalism you showed towards my family in this most difficult time. You also cared for dad three years ago. You went an extra mile by jointly organising with the NHS and others. From the road closure, guard of honour, unison reps and police escort to ensure the day went smoothly. They are un-sung hero's in this bleak times.

    My family and I have nothing but praise for Harold White especially Gary and Bernadette, at a time of personal tragedy we were supported, guided and advised. The Covid-19 Pandemic had just struck with the situation changing daily, Harold White's team carried on with the utmost professionalism. The cremation service, limited as it was, had dignity and reverence. Once again thank you.

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?
