Mr Friendship is a wonderful funeral director. He was very responsive to our preferences. The coffin he suggested was perfect (willow grown and woven on Exmoor). He kept us informed at every stage. The order of service was beautifully composed and printed exactly as we wanted. The price was very reasonable. I strongly recommend this company.

  • 5 Nick Hill 13th Nov 2019

    Nick and his team did a brilliant job throughout a very difficult time, and moved everything around to accommodate a double funeral when my father also passed away shortly after my mother. Can't recommend highly enough.

  • 5 Andrew Fisk 3rd Sep 2019

    Nick and his team co-ordinated everything so smoothly and with such compassion that my dad's funeral was the send off we'd hoped to give him. We were kept informed all the way through and given lot's of options to consider in terms of what we wanted. Nick was always quick at responding and helping us with suggestions around the arrangements. The service was excellent. Thank you Nick The Fisk family.

    We used friendship and sons funeral directors for our fathers funeral. the service by them was excellent, from start to finish. everyone involved put us at ease and make an incredibly hard day a lot easier. all the staff at friendship and sons were very welcoming, friendly and sincere, didnt rush us, and allowed us to plan at our own pace, nothing we asked for was too much trouble. I would highly recommend using them.

  • 5 Jean Timberlake 14th May 2017

  • 5 Nicky Hall 12th May 2017

    Very helpful and friendly 

  • 5 Jane Arkle 6th Apr 2017

    Nick Friendship was very helpful, providing the right balance between giving advice and listening to what the family wanted, and he was happy to have face-to-face meetings to discuss various aspects of the process. His team took care of all the details relating to the crematorium and the church, which meant that we had a relatively stress-free day. He was prepared to be a bit innovative when it came to music for the Thanksgiving Service, and he also created a very tasteful Service Sheet by including the photos we had given him to the best advantage. I would most certainly recommend the firm to others.

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.
