Everything dealt efficiently in the one meeting with prompt replies to my later email queries. Rhian explained all aspects of the cremation service and found a brilliant celebrant for us. Service went with no problems.

    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.

    Excellent service , professional , nothing is too much trouble , will always recommend highly 

  • 5 Dihanne Price 3rd Apr 2018

    We couldn't have wished for a better funeral director following my mother's recent passing. From first contact, Rhian was the consumate professional. Her experience was invaluable in guiding and organising everything from the Church and crematorium, order of service, music, cars through to the memorial stone and internment service. She made a difficult time much easier. We felt we and Mum received a much more personal service than if we had used one of the out of town funeral directors. My sisters and I would wholeheartedly recommend Rhian's services.

    Excellent say's it all.

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.
