    Rhian was lovely and organised everything so you don’t need to concern yourselves once you have said what you want. Highly recommend xx

  • 5 Lindsey Guest 19th Mar 2021

    Very kind, caring and professional. I cannot thank Rhian and her team enough for her care at this very difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.

  • 5 Duncan Payne 17th Mar 2021

    Rhian got to my Dad before he was sick for the last time and knew his wishes for the funeral. The funeral went as planned and all his wishes were fulfilled. She followed up after the service. Watching the funeral on a webcast made all the difference as we were so far from the event and brought us closer. Well done!

  • 5 Howard Marshall 3rd Mar 2021

    I would recomend Rhian Greaves (The Lady Ùndertaker) in sad times of need. She provides a very professional, sensitive & personal service. I would recomend her service & support in such sad times of need. Howard Marshall.

  • 5 Susan Holland 12th Feb 2021

    Friendly, helpful ladies who made what could have been a distressing situation very easy to organise. Nothing was too much trouble for them & the Funeral Service went off very smoothly. Would certainly recommend them to other folk.

  • 5 Pauline Lee 25th Jan 2021

    Rhian Greaves is a wonderful support in the hardest of times always very professional and provides all the information and any extra she thinks we may need to know, which we found made us feel that we were in safe hands! Unfortunately my family has had to use the services provided twice in the last two years. Having said that We as a family would highly recommend Greaves funeral director and feel that it is Rhian herself who makes the experience the best one .

  • 5 Michael Everest 4th Jan 2021

     This was the first funeral I’ve had to arrange and  both Rhian and Eleanor made the whole experience bearable. Both were very kind, helpful and sympathetic.  Special mention must also go to the driver of the hearse who  got us to the crematorium during a heavy snow storm. Thank you all.

    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.

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?
