Very helpful and understanding, excellent service

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.

    This is the first funeral within my family that we have had to arrange. My Dad was really special to us all and we wanted a fitting tribute to his passing. Rhian Greaves provided just that, a sympathetic service catering for all our needs and requirements. My mother enjoyed the female touch provided by Rhian,and we as a family are deeply gratefully for the professional faultless way Dad's funeral was organized and performed. Big thank you Rhian.

    Rhian is amazingly kind and professional. At a time when there is a lot of sadness and darkness, she lightens the atmosphere with her help and suggestions and little personal touches.  Her offices are warm and welcoming and the whole experience was made a lot easier by having her to guide us. So grateful for her help and thoroughly recommend her.

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?
