    Emma and all her staff at RB Copping, Poringland made what was a very distressing time so much easier to deal with. From our 1st meeting shortly after my mum died until the funeral itself everything was dealt with extremely professionally but also sympathetically.Nothing was too much trouble and Emma seemed to instinctively know exactly what kind of funeral I wanted.The actual funeral ran very smoothly and all my family and family were most impressed.In these strange times I don’t think anyone else could have provided such a perfect end to someone who was so very special.

  • 5 Peter Hart 20th Oct 2020

    Thank you Emma for the excellent and very professional way Rosie's cremation service and the later thanksgiving at Colney Wood were realised.  Many have commented that the thanksgiving was a lovely occasion and all the better for being recorded for those who couldn't be there on the day.   I very much appreciated your personal empathy, support and advice.  Arranging some of the pottery Rosie had produced on the table with her ashes was a brilliant idea! Thank you again Peter Hart

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.
