    I am really impressed with the level of care I have received from Margaret and Muriel following the passing of my husband Robert. Everything went perfectly from Philip phoning the day before to explain what would take place on the day. He took special care of Robert, me and my family with compassion and respect. I couldn't have asked for anything better and it meant a lot to me and my family to feel special. Also a special thanks to John Jones for the service.

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?
