Allistair and Hasina at Compassionate Funerals were just wonderful. Their input into the funeral of a dear friend was sensitive, understated and highly professional. Their care made all the difference. They really do an excellent job.

Sonia Bhambhra 18th Aug 2018

All I can say is a massive Thank you to Alastair and his team. They were professional at all times, from the minute we enquired to the last minute of my grandad funeral. I would highly recommend compassionate funeral because they live by their name. Thank you once again from the Bhambhra family

    Allistair and his team have done an amazing job in very little time. We had a week from contacting Compassionate Funerals for the first time to the day of the funeral, their professional and indeed compassionate attitude, has made the whole process very stress free - we could not have wished for more. The proximity from their office to the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium is ideal as they are in the same road, which meant that we were able to have a walking procession making the day that bit more special. From the whole family we would like to thank you for giving our beloved sister the send-off she deserved.

    Hasina and Alistair at Compassionate Funerals are extremely understanding and offer much more flexibility than is the norm in this industry. They go out of their way to ensure this difficult time is made as smooth as possible.

  • 5 Jane Wallbank 19th Mar 2018

    Compassionate Funerals have been fantastic. They helped us enormously with the service and were mindful of everything we wanted for our father. From beginning to end they were efficient, diligent and most of all kind. I would highly recommend them.

    From start to finish Allistair (& his team) have been amazing. We couldn't of done it without his help. His calmness, friendly manner and the ability to get in touch with him at any time made the whole process so much easier. Without a doubt we recommend Compassionate Funerals.

    Allistair was very u understanding and couldn't have been more accommodating.

  • 5 Keith Robins 24th Nov 2017

    Allistair and Andrea are both very supportive and helpful. They were both very generous with their time and guided me through the whole funeral process in a very human and caring way. They were very willing to tailor things to suit me and my particular needs. If you want to deal with people rather than a slick business then Compassionate Funerals is very highly recommended.

  • 5 Michael Josiah 24th Oct 2017

    Allistair and Hasina provided an incredibly warm, sensitive and professional service. The whole family thanks them and would recommend them wholeheartedly.

  • 5 Anne lydiat 4th Oct 2017

    I cannot recommend Compassionate Funerals high enough. They were extremely sensitive and caring throughout this difficult time both to myself and my family. I totally entrusted the care of my husband with them and they helped and supported me in realising a somewhat unconventional but totally fitting farewell to him.

  • 5 Quynh Hua 28th May 2017

    Couldn't have asked for more. Allistair and his staff helped my family through one of our toughest times. The kindness, warmth and patience shown to us was more then we could ever have expected. As a family we would like to sincerely thank you for your support. 

    Allistair Anderson replied
    Dear Quynh, Thank you for your very kind words. It was an honour to serve you and your family. Allistair Compassionate Funerals

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?
