    Lovely, professional service from an independent lady funeral director. Rhian made us feel at ease & sorted everything smoothly for us. Claire, whom she recommended for our service was amazing. Our flowers arranged through Rhian were beautiful. Thoroughly recommend R Greaves & Co.

  • 5 George Rogers 17th Aug 2020

    My wife’s death and the need to organise a funeral caused me and my family  a lot of worry and concern.  Rhian and her team lifted much of that from our shoulders.  They were very professional and efficient throughout. At our meetings Rhian was pleasant and helpful; the service was carried out exactly as we had asked.  Everything on the day went smoothly so that a very traumatic experience was made much more bearable.

    Rhian provided us with friendly no fuss support and guidance throughout the whole process of organising our Mums funeral.

  • 5 Phil Hayward 23rd Jan 2020

    Rhian is a very professional lady. She is so easy to talk to. It made us feel relaxed seeing a warm smiling face at the crematorium. Thanks to Rhian we were able to use the Webcam facilities at Shrewsbury Crem which enabled our very ill brother in a Care Home to see his mother's funeral live. Our brother and sister in Australia were also able to view it live too. This made such a big difference to the day knowing that they were part of it even though they weren't there. Thank you so much Rhian.

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.

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?
