  • 1 catherine patterson 4th Mar 2018

    Thought funeral would be cancelled because of red alert for the weather ..instead it when a head with us and hearse being stuck on kirkhill , the hearse door opened twice , a grieving son and grandson trying to push hearse up hill !!!! totally disgusted by the way we were treated , not a respectful send off all .. more like a black and white comedy film !!! It was people coming out their homes n 3 workmen who came to our aid .also all of us could have been killed in that weather when this happened

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.
