After the sudden loss of our much loved mother it was such a relief to talk to Shane about the service, he put us all at ease , Shane and his colleagues and family are friendly and professional and guided us through every step .  Definitely went the extra mile at such a sad time in our lives.

Shane and his guys were extremely good, accommodating all of our needs plus more, some real nice touches included lowering the coffin down so y mums dad could put some flowers on from his wheelchair. We would highly recommend Shane any time

  • 5 Emily D'Wilton-Holmes 3rd Aug 2021

    Shayne was wonderful, from our very first meeting he was so considerate and listened to every detail, we feel like he really got to know Nanny. Not once did we feel rushed or pressured, and the fact that we were able to organise for Nanny to make an entrance on a Motorcycle side car was just beautiful, she would have loved it. We also had some last minute (very last minute!) changes to music and readings, which Shayne still managed to organise and even printed out an up to date order of service the morning of. We cannot thank Shayne enough for organising such a perfect send off at such a difficult time, we will certainly be recommending. 

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Emily and family thank you for taking the time to leave this review it means so much to me and my family. I do love getting to know about the people that I am looking after I think she would of been proud of you all and she would of loved the Motorcycle side car. We use all local family businesses for our supplies and that gives us the chance to make last minute changes.
  • 5 William Smith 2nd Aug 2021

    Shayne from the moment he came to house, to the time he dropped us at the wake he guided and advised the family.  He was personally involved and directed operations on every aspect, viewings, the service everything, accommodating our needs.. perfect… I believe my wife summed it up… Shayne you are like one of the family. I would have no hesitation to recommend him and would not consider another should I need his services again Thank you very much sir.. you helped provide the service and send off we wanted, for that I will always be grateful.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear William and family thank you so much for this lovely review I always try to treat my family's the way I would want to be treated myself. It is an honour to be classed as one of your family.

  • 5 Steve Farage 8th Jun 2021

    I would unreservedly recommend Shayne Stork Family Funeral Services, who recently organised my father's funeral. The whole process from collection of the body through to discussion of arrangements with immediate family, and then the actual service itself were seemlessly managed in a most sympathetic and professional manner. Shayne gave us much welcome and helpful advice, always ensuring that the wishes of the family were paramount. Everyone who attended the service were agreed that it was a very fitting send off for my late father.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Steve thank you for your kind words so pleased we were able to make things a little easier at such a difficult time for you all and glad that everyone attending thought it was a fitting send off for your Dad
  • 5 Eamonn Fountain 26th May 2021

    Shayne his Family and staff, provided an excellent service to our family on the passing of my Mum, from our initial contact he made us feel comfortable and talked us through the whole process of the cremation and the paperwork, who to contact, They made what we thought was going to be a very difficult and stressful time into something we can look back on with happy memories and know that Shayne made that possible and Nothing was too much trouble for them, even arranging a casket , Urn and Memory box with a Daffodil scene printed on them, Mum would have really loved them. A truly caring independent funeral director. this was the first time I have had to arrange a funeral and Shayne made it personal, I will use his services again when the need arise but hope it's not too soon. Thank You.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Eamonn, thank you for your lovely words so pleased We could help you at this time of your life and that we took some of the worry’s and stress away. Mums coffin looked amazing I think she would of approved as it was so colourful.

  • 5 Dominic Gilbert 21st Apr 2021

    I'm so thankful it was Shayne who took on my Mum's funeral. Even though he knew her personally so the day itself was particularly difficult for him, he was a consummate professional, always at the end of the phone to help planning and helpful and dignified on the day. He didn't even mind when I called at 3am to notify him. An absolutely lovely man for whom nothing is too much trouble, even taking on all upfront funeral expenses to minimise our worries and stress for the funeral. I can't recommend Shayne highly enough.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Dominic, thank you for such a lovely review. As I knew mum personally it was even more of a privilege to be able to look after her on her final journey. She did so much for me in the past and I will always remember her with fondness. Best wishes to you all Shayne
  • 5 Shirley Cutting 20th Apr 2021

    We as a family have used Shayne's funeral service before and would not think about going anywhere else. Shayne and his team are compassionate and professional at all times and there is nothing he wouldn't do to help the family. He treated Billy (David)with the upmost respect and we thank him and his team for everything. From all of the family

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Shirley and Family thank you for such kind words we were pleased to be of help at this sad time for you.
  • 5 Margaret Gooderham 19th Apr 2021

    Shayne showed nothing but respect and compassion for Dad and the family, from the first phone call to the end of the service. He made everything easy for us at a very difficult time. If ever there was a time you need a service to rely on its when you lose a loved one and we would not hesitate to recommend Shayne to anyone.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Margaret and family thank you for your kind words so pleased I was able to help you all at this time. It was nice to be able to find out so much about Dad and to meet you all. 
  • 5 samantha Cooper 10th Apr 2021

    From the very first phone call Shayne and his staff have been more than excellent. I cannot praise them enough. At an extremely difficult and harrowing time, they took care of everything. Nothing was too much trouble. Each step was explained to me. Shayne and his staff certainly go the data mile. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. I definitely made the right decision when I chose Shayne Stork and Family funeral services. Thank you.

    SHAYNE STORK replied

  • 5 Sue Spinks 9th Mar 2021

    We were very pleased with the service received from Shayne and his team. Everything was organised by phone and email, so was very easy for us. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone as he made what is a very sad day stress free for us. The quality of service sheets was also good.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Thank you for your review glad we helped at such a sad time for yourselves. we always try to make things less stressful and we use a local printer for the service sheets and will pass on you comments .

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.

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.
