Jim Dixon 19th Apr 2020

From my first telephone call to David Barrington the the funeral was handled with care tact and dignity. suggestions were made without any force or pressure everything went smoothly despite not being able to meet in person until we were at the crematorium. They were working in most unusual circumstances due to the lockdown but carried out their work very well. Jim Dixon

They will try to ensure the same funeral director consults directly with the family about arrangements for the day throughout the planning process.
The Barringtons funeral home in Formby offers well-maintained, attractive modern chapels with neutral furnishings and well-finished decorations. You can drop by to discuss funeral arrangements, for help and advice, or even just for a chat.

  • 5 Jayne Cudby 2nd Feb 2020

    Claire Barrington guided us very professionally throughout the whole process. From our initial meeting sorting out all the paperwork, to explaining all the disbursements from a pre-paid funeral package from Avalon, through to the day itself making sure everything went smoothly at the crematorium. So impressed, that we are now going to buy a funeral package direct with Barringtons!

  • 5 Helen Rimmer 4th Dec 2019

    They can't do enough for you. They ensure everything is very personal. Right from the start Claire and David were extremely and empathic. They gave me all the options without pushing any agenda; the final decisions were definitely mine, but I wouldn't have had some of the ideas without them. Claire supported me throughout the day, guiding me when I needed it. David read twice for us when we couldn't do it at the last minute. They ensured everything ran smooth and too the family's wishes. They continue to support me even now that the funeral is over and are help me with interment of the ashes. I can't recommend them highly enough.

There care and compassion was second to none. I would recommend them to anyone, knowing they would do an excellent job. Thank you from a very satisfied and grateful client. Regards Alan Cousins.

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.
