Stoodley and Sons were wonderful in helping me plan my Father’s funeral as I had not had to do this before. The Funeral all went to plan and I was very happy with their service. I would highly recommend them.

  • 5 Maria England 29th Sep 2020

    Tracey and her team were very professional whilst being sensitive and personal. Nothing was too much trouble for them, from the choosing the flowers and the music, they gave helpful advice.

This difficult time was made bearable by Colin officiating a personal service assisted Ellie, Thank you both very much.

  • 5 Dr David Holland-Smith 20th Aug 2020

    Stoodley and Sons arranged and conducted my Mum's funeral with utmost professionalism, sensitivity and attention to detail, exceeding my expectations in many aspects. The Stoodley team delivered a fitting and intimate tribute to an exemplary life and I am sure that the funeral and service were just as my Mum would have wished. My family is most grateful.

    Tracey Warren replied
    Thank you David, that is very kind of you to say.
  • 5 Judy Prescott 9th Jun 2020

    Cannot speak highly enough of this Company. They have taken care of both my parents now and have treated me and my family with care and consideration on both occasions. Even with the present restrictions I did not feel that we had any less attention than we would normally have done. Colin and his colleagues were very kind and respectful.

  • 5 Keith Bunce 6th May 2020

    In the very strange circumstances of the corona virus lockdown we can’t thank Colin and Ellie enough for their kindness, understanding and help. Thanks so much for being there with us to give Mum such a good send off. Blessings to all at Stoodley’s, Keith, Vivienne, Jordan & Danika

  • 5 Geraldine Clotworthy 5th May 2020

    Where do I begin?  Thank you hardly sounds adequate.  I and my family are so grateful for all you did before and during John's funeral, you looked after us well and went out of your way to ensure absent family members were included by setting up filming that was viewed live in Norfolk, Bournemouth, Hamburg and Marseille.  They were able to see and hear the graveside service.  You provide the most professional help in a sensitive, friendly and cheerful way which, at a difficult time, is much appreciated.  You made last Monday a comfortable day for us, we felt completely satisfied that all went well.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stoodley and Son. Thank you Tracey, Colin and Ellie.

  • 5 Ann Golding 30th Apr 2020

    Tracy and the rest of the team were very caring and helpful at this sad time and we would not hesitate to use them again as this is a very difficult time with the lockdown and we would not have asked for any one more caring thank you to the whole team from Ann golding and family 

  • 5 Kathy Vertannes 30th Apr 2020

    Superb, excellent, professional service which we cannot praise or recommend highly enough. They went above and beyond in helping me and my family give my mother the funeral she deserved under the most harshly difficult and unprecedented circumstances. Tracey and Colin were a pleasure to deal with and showed us such great empathy and compassion in their dealings with us and we so appreciated the personal touch which is not only extremely rare these days but is definitely missing when dealing with larger, more corporate companies.  If we could possibly award more than five stars then we would!  Well done A.E. Stoodley, we salute you!

  • 5 Anonymous Review 18th Apr 2020

    God is in the details it is said and during this unique and trying time the team made sensitive and swift responses to changing guidelines and made an otherwise increasingly difficult situation effortless and not without joy. I wouldn’t be surprised if you had organised the perfect weather too. Thank you so much for your kind support and resilience. 

  • 5 Clive and Kim Retter 17th Apr 2020

    We contacted A.E Stoodleys and we were supported through out the planing of Pansy's funeral. We were able to contact them easily, in person, on the telephone or by email. Always a quick response. Colin had great empathy and understood our requirements for a very private / personal funeral.

  • 5 Bethany Woolacott 22nd Dec 2019

    Tracey and her team at A.E Stoodley (Colin, Ellie, Roger and the pallbearers) went above and beyond to help make such a sad occasion with the loss of my dear Mum, a lot more bearable. Nothing  was ever too much trouble. There was always someone on hand for our needs 24 hours a day. The funeral that was held was dealt with in such a professional manner. Tracey herself took the service and as funerals go, it was perfect. I know that my Mum would of approved, especially to “Dancing Queen!”Many thanks again for all of your hard work. Beth Woolacott

  • 5 Fiona Robinson 28th Nov 2019

    From the moment we lost David that night till his wonderful funeral we never felt alone . Stoodley staff were wonderful. My husband and I were not going to have funerals but this has changed our mind and we will not only have them but will use Stoodley.

  • 5 Debra Hayes 25th Nov 2019

    Colin Robert's couldn't have been more helpful and supportive to help us to put together a fitting farewell to Michael. It was as he would have wanted a small family gathering to celebrate his life - it was perfect. Michael had cut the advert out of the paper himself and put it in a safe place. Thank you.

  • 5 Nicholas Whitsun-Jones 25th Nov 2019

    A first class service throughout. Couldn't have been better.

  • 5 Valerie Beckett 25th Nov 2019

    Our family could not have wished for more caring and sensitive support in arranging our mother's funeral. Colin's thoughtful manner, guidance and wisdom at a difficult time was wonderful and truly appreciated.

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.
