We couldn’t fault any part of the arrangements, totally satisfied. All the staff were wonderful and caring at a difficult time.

E Richardson 10th Feb 2020

Efficient, supportive, compassionate and kind. Qualities that are so important at a time of grief. Every member of staff I encountered exhibited these attributes, and Kelly, who guided me through the heartbreaking process of saying goodbye to my husband of 50 years, quite literally went the extra mile to ensure that everything was organised exactly as I'd wished. My family and I are thankful that we entrusted the arrangements for my husband's funeral to Susan Whymark's dedicated team.

    It was hard to evaluate at the time as the immediate aftermath was just so awful for me and my family - but now looking back I can truly say that this company was fantastic - Susan and her team are brilliant and I am so glad I chose them. Absolutely recommend 100%.

  • 5 N Goodwin 23rd Jan 2020

    I can't reiterate enough how dignified and respectful Susan and Kelly were with our son Charlie. I couldn't have asked for more and they bent over backwards for us. All preparations too for his funeral went smoothly and very professional. If you want your loved one cared for in a respectful dignified way then Susan and her team are the ones who will go over and above for you.

    Mandy has a kind and soft personality, I didn't feel rushed or under any pressure at all whilst making arrangements for my father's funeral. All details were handled promptly and efficiently and updates followed throughout by email or telephone so I felt reassured that everything was in hand. On the day of the funeral Susan gave us a lovely welcome easing us. A personal request was met on the journey to the service which I greatly appreciated. Susan and her team are wonderful and handle a very emotional time with dignity and compassion. Thank you

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.
