Arranging a funeral is never a nice thing to have to do but from the first phone call I had with Nigel, the process seemed a lot easier. He provided me with a lot of information before we even booked with them & I have to say, he is an absolutely lovely man. You can clearly see that this job is a vocation for him, he obviously cares deeply for those that he works with. The service they provided was so dignified, my Dad would have been proud. Thank you doesn't really do it, but thank you so much to Nigel & the rest of your team for making such a hard day, that bit easier. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

  • 5 Robert Smart 2nd Jun 2021

    We went to Groves when my mother-in-law passed as our first enquiry simply because we happened to be next door. We also went to a few other funeral directors but none really compared with Nigel and Claire. When my Dad passed away Nigel and Claire were our first and only port of call. When my Mum passed away a few months later there was only one option in my mind. We would highly recommend Nigel and Claire.

  • 5 Phil Warren 2nd Jun 2021

    Clare and the team were wonderful. They dealt with all our needs in a compassionate and understanding way. The options and advice for the service were clear with nothing being too much trouble. The cremation service was faultless and their support guides you through what is a difficult day. I would recommend Groves without hesitation.

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.
