I have nothing but good to say about Peter and his Team for the wonderful service we received for my Dad's Funeral on 16 April. From the very first Meeting to the actual Service everything was done in a professional and respectful manner and am so glad that we entrusted them to carry it out for us. Thank you again Peter, despite being a very sad day for us you along with the Celebrant Janet made it so special. God Bless you.

    Really professional from the initial engagement through to the funeral itself.

  • 5 Ian Bradshaw 13th Feb 2021

    Even though it was late in the evening, my initial call was answered immediately and people arrived soon after to take my recently departed father to the chapel of rest. All of my dealings after this were with Nichola who was sympathetic, considerate, friendly but most importantly efficient in everything she had to do. This all made a difficult time much easier to cope with. I would recommend Chapmans & Thornalley Funeral Services.

  • 5 Graham Atwood 22nd Jan 2021

    Excellent standard throughout. Peter was particularly patient and kind, and made a difficult time bearable.

  • 5 Kevin Lee 20th Jan 2021

    Sadly I've had to use the services of Chapmans & Thornalley FD Swaffham in May 2020 and January 2021 for two very close friends where I was the Executor. On both occasions I've found the office administration by Nickhola Carlyon and the management of the funeral on the day by Peter Chaphman as first class. Absolutely no detail however small was too much trouble for them to address. Prior to the second funeral Peter, visited the village were the deceased previously lived, to reconnoiter the location where the hearse would stop for two minutes before moving on to the funeral destination. I commend their kindness and professionalism to anyone needing the services of a funeral Director. Kevin Lee

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.
