  • 5 Graham Oakland 3rd Mar 2018

    I can't speak highly enough of this company. Chris listened to everything we wanted and produced it all without fuss and with total kindness and efficiency. Nothing was too much trouble , especially finding the right music, the celebrant was wonderful, and the day went perfectly, despite appalling weather conditions. There was a follow up phone call to see if the catering was satisfactory, which it was. I have no hesitation in recommending this company , you could not do better

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?
