The death of the love of my life has been the most difficult experience of my life, but I must say that the staff at Rackhams couldn’t have been kinder, more professional or helpful, thereby making the whole thing a lot easier than I’d have expected. From giving me as much time as I needed to sit with Christina to the respect they showed for her body and the professionalism with which they talked me through options. Nothing was too big a hurdle so we got everything we needed to make it a special send off that. Ours be shared with friends and family the world over.

  • 5 Karen Rigby 31st Dec 2021

    We were very impressed with the friendly, compassionate way in which we were treated by Gemma and Madeleine. If they weren't sure of something they would say so straight away and get back to us , which was refreshing. Everything went well at the funeral, thanks to their organisation. Gemma also made a follow-up call after the funeral to make sure all was well with us. Again, over and above the call of duty. Thank you very much for making a sad time more bearable.

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.

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.
