Everyone at Barringtons made a very difficult time much more bearable.  They were helpful,  understanding and gave my Dad the respectful funeral he deserved. Would definitely advise others to give Barringtons a call.

About Us

A warm, friendly family-run business, Barringtons Independent Funeral Services covers the areas of Waterloo, Merseyside, Wirral and North Liverpool. All aspects of the funeral arrangements are taken care of from the moment they are contacted. 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 offers well-maintained, attractive modern chapels with neutral furnishings and well finished decorations. With two floors and plenty of room for families and visitors, you can drop by to discuss funeral arrangements, for help and advice, or even just for a chat.

Barringtons specialise in a range of funerals, from traditional burials and cremations, to more non-traditional ceremonies, such as eco or ‘green’ funerals. They will try to cater to any alternative aspects or personalisations you want to incorporate to create a fitting tribute to your loved one. These include dove releases, horse-drawn funerals, flower tributes and fly-past tributes.

Other products and services are also available, such as caskets, memorial jewellery, urns, condolence books and photo frames. Barringtons are also able to help with organising obituary placements, donations from guests and taking names at the funeral.

From the moment mum and I met Claire and her colleagues to arrange funeral plans we were treated with the utmost respect, courtesy and kindness. All aspects of the funeral and arrangements were carefully and sincerely discussed and handled wonderfully. What could have been a more difficult time for me and my family was alleviated and taken care of by this very special team. Thank you so very much for everything from start to finish. Pete Gibson-Black and the Gibson family.

    Claire really went out of her way to help us create a funeral to reflect my mother's personality and life.  I was impressed by her flexibility and the way she explained all of the options and costs involved.  It was clear to everyone who attended the funeral that Barringtons had gone out of their way to provide a caring and dignified occasion.

    Hi Johanna, it felt like a very special tribute to your mum and was a lovely service and I'm proud we could play a part. Thank you for the review. Claire

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.
