    From start to finish Neil was looked after with dignity and respect ,nothing was too much trouble for the people involved in the arrangements of his funeral,Joanna in particular was patient and pointed us all in the right direction with her gentle manner and etiquette I found that very comforting throughout,the drivers Rob and Dave were dignified and gracious on our last journey with Neil . I would certainly recommend to anyone this team of people who made a very heartbreaking time a whole lot easier 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    All the team on the day was happy to help you on Neil’s final journey and we are pleased that everything went as you had wished. It certainly was a heart-breaking time for you, not helped by the fact that so many of his friends couldn’t be there for his funeral but you all did him proud and he had a wonderfully dignified service. Thank you, Joanna.

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.
