  • 5 Alison Hall 7th Jan 2019

    We first met Tracey at a local agricultural show and we knew from the off that we wanted Stoodleys to handle any funeral requirements we may have. Unfortunately we lost my Dad in early December and from the very beginning Stoodleys have been excellent. We had several unavoidable delays in sorting out the arrangements but nothing was too much trouble including rearranging appointments at short notice. When finally we were able to sit down with Tracey we felt at ease and able to discuss our requirements and select various options with her guidance. We engaged a Celebrant called Derren via Tracey and her services were equally as professional. On the day everything went without a hitch, the service was delivered by Derren with sensitivity and compassion and Tracey's team were seamless. I can't thank you all enough for making an extremely sad day a success. I would not hesitate to recommend you to local friends along with Derren if a Celebrant is required. Alison.

    Our family are very grateful to Tracey and her dedicated team for helping us make Dads funeral into a wonderful celebration of his life. Tracey guided us through the funeral process with such kindness, compassion and meticulous attention to detail. Whatever we asked from her, nothing was too much trouble Tracey and her teams service is truly outstanding and second to none

  • 5 Colin Ross 1st Dec 2018

    From first contact Stoodley’s were absolutely fantastic in all aspects.  Organising from a Celabrant, cars flowers crematorium time & date to suit all of our needs. So friendly & professional.  I and my family would highly recommend them to everybody.  Excellent from start to finish. 

  • 5 Rachel Mather 9th Nov 2018

    Colin has been wonderful from the first time he came and met Stuart to plan his own funeral we felt like we were going to ok when the worst happened and we were right. From the time I rang Colin to tell him the sad news they treated Stuart with the care and dignity he deserved. He supported us to organise the celebration that stuart had planned we could not have asked for more. He was always approachable and made you feel at ease, even if you felt like you were asking silly questions! I could not recommend Colin and his team more. Thank you for everything. 

  • 5 Adrian Sturges 31st Oct 2018

  • 5 Peter Clark 7th Oct 2018

    Colin and his team were excellent at being sensitive to our families needs and helped us at a difficult time to do the best for our departed mothers funeral arrangements as she had wished it to be. Thank you to all from the Clark family.

  • 5 Miriam Hedges 1st Oct 2018

    Stoodleys had a friendly, comfortable, approachable way that gave us exactly what we needed and wanted. They helped us sort an informal, comfortable 'tailored-to-our-needs' tribute-service that respected our wishes for the deceased 'Bob', and was entirely respectable within a limited budget. Tracey supported us in a kind, caring and practical way, without hurrying us, and couldn't have done more to ensure that everything worked well and went smoothly both before, during and afterwards. Stoodleys seemed to understand our needs and went that extra mile to ensure the little touches were there too - many thanks for your kindness at this difficult time.

  • 5 Pamela Entwisle 1st Oct 2018

    A E Stoodley,  under their Funeral director Ms Tracey Warren, were very easy to deal with, from their first visit after my Husbands death, and subsequent visits they made all the decisions easy to make and were anxious to make this very difficult time for me and my children  as comfortable as possible. The Funeral service and interment were very well arranged and since then I have had such support from them including a bereavement support programme  which I feel will be of help with dealing with my grief.

  • 5 Sarah Bartlett 27th Sep 2018

  • 5 Ron Spencer 26th Sep 2018

    A.E.Stoodley and Son arranged for the funeral of my father. They were professional in every way, helpful in every aspect , caring and efficient. They had the answer to every question I asked before the funeral and even had answers to questions I didn't ask but should have. Thank you Tracy and Colin and the team.

    The funeral of Edward James Wilkins was lovely, everything Dad would have wanted and more. A big thank you to Colin from A.E Stoodley & Son for your expert guidance and support, also thank you to the Royal British Legion, for providing the Standard Barer and trumpet player, and thank you to Reverend Jonathan Morris for officiating the service. Thanks again Colin for putting it all together so smoothly and making a difficult that much easier. Kind Regards Grace Isbell Daughter of deceased.

    Tracey Warren replied
    Thank you so much for the lovely review, It was a privilege to look after your family and your Dad. I thought the service and the turnout from the RBL was really lovely. Best Wishes, Colin
  • 5 Graham Wood 31st Jul 2018

    Every aspect of the arrangements for my Mothers' 'Celebration of Life' was impeccably organised by Stoodley & Son. From the first meeting, to the departure from the Crematorium, Tracey Warren and her staff handled affairs with understanding and efficiency. Also, Ali the recommended celebrant understood and delivered the introduction and departure from the service in a tone wholly consistent with the 'brief'. My sincere thanks to all Stoodleys.

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?
