    I must say Groves we’re very professional and compassionate, Claire was particularly good keeping me informed and updated on a regular basis I would definitely recommend them in the future 

  • 5 Paul Culliven 28th May 2021

    Can't recommend Groves enough. They took such care in their dealings with us and helped us every step of the way. Just the right balance of empathy and compassion. When the cost of funerals is a worry for many their charges are very competitive and they allow you to choose the funeral that is right for your circumstances. Recommend unreservedly

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.
