    We would highly recommend RSJ. Shannon and the team were amazing. So experienced and professional throughout, guiding us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. Nothing was a problem and someone was always available to answer any questions. Richard and Barry ensured everything ran smoothly on the day and I know the rest of the team were also involved in some way in looking after Tony. A family business that looks after bereaved families. Heartfelt thanks to all involved.

  • 5 Ruth Taylor 7th Sep 2021

    Really helpful and lovely staff. Thanks Ritchie Jnr for being so thoughtful 

  • 5 Marvin Critchley 1st Sep 2021

    Shannon & the Team were Truly ‘Exceptional’ following my beloved Mother’s sudden & unexpected passing.  The family & I were made welcome from when we first made contact with RSJ & throughout the whole process.  The thing that stands out for me is the genuine empathy shown, this along with such professionalism & genuine care.  Yes the team are experienced & have a job to do, but the way it’s carried out is incredible  & with a personal touch, I cannot praise Shannon & the team enough, I’m well & truly heartbroken but felt compelled to share my  feelings.  With this service, you are not made to feel like a number but instead a very valued fellow human being.  My beautiful Mother also spoke very highly of RSJ as they dealt with the passing of her brother last year. Shannon, thank you for making the most painful period of my life that bit better.  The very proud Son of Marlene, Marvin.

    I am leaving this review on behalf of my family following the recent loss of our beautiful dad. I must start by saying, having the responsibility, as my sisters and I did, to arrange our dad’s funeral, was a responsibility we all took exceptionally seriously and has always been one of those events that we have spoken about never wanting to have to arrange. We have been exceptionally fortunate as a family, to have had our parents in our lives until we have reached middle age, but that doesn’t make things any easier, everyone’s loss is devastating to them and our little family was, and remains, truly devastated. We selected RSJ Family Funeral Directors because we had heard so many positive things about the company from friends and colleagues, however, we have to say, we didn’t really understand just what was required and how RSJ would reach out and support us - and their support was truly amazing! From the initial call and booking with Shannon, to the first meeting she held with my sisters and me, the professionalism and the quality of service provided was outstanding. From the way they helped personally guide us through what we needed to do, provided options and recommendations for us when we felt things were too difficult to think about at that time, and how efficient and effective they were in delivering the funeral service, meant that we had a flawless opportunity to show our respects to our dad and support our mum through this very painful period – they really did offer an impeccable service and we actually feel really proud of how we celebrated our dad’s life on the day of his funeral. I think for my family, what we came to feel very quickly was that RSJ understood us, they knew our dad and our family – even though we had never met before – and they were able to articulate our requirements and put them into action. Richard Senior and all the rest of the team were exactly the same. The way they greeted us when we came to the chapel to pay our respects, to the calm, peaceful and beautifully prepared chapel and the dignity shown to our dad and our family as we struggled with our grief on the day of the service was just first-class. Another point that we discussed as a family was the environment that they have created in the chapel. We all have a perception of what a funeral parlour will be like, and for many, that is really quite daunting. However, the beautiful spaces that they have created took all of that fear away and made us feel that our dad was safe, secure and truly at peace. Thank-you again Shannon, Richard Senior and all the team, we are exceptionally grateful. Warmest wishes, Denise Barrett-Baxendale (on behalf of my mum and my sisters)

    Thank you Denise, Pat and family we really appreciate your lovely words ❤️❤️

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.

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.
