  • 5 Jacqueline Strasdin 24th Aug 2021

    I only had a direct cremation but everything appeared to be in order, carried out very efficiently and, fortunately without the usual mawkish sentiments that one usually comes across from everyone usually concerned with a funeral.

  • 5 Jenny Guppy 24th Aug 2021

    From the outset, outstanding service, care and attention were received from Stuart, Jo and Team. A truly first-class Funeral Director.

  • 5 Amanda Way 24th Aug 2021

    From the moment Stuart and Jo arrived at our house i felt comforted that they would take care of mum. They not only showed mum care and respect which was wonderful but they cared about us too. This has been hard but Stuart and Jo took a huge weight from my shoulders as I knew mum was in safe hands. Thank you both so much.

  • 5 David Hemsley 24th Aug 2021

    Absolutely outstanding service and attention to detail . Nothing was too much trouble and made the whole process as smooth and thoughtful as could possibly be .

  • 5 Hazel Redgwick 16th Aug 2021

    When I met Stuart and his team I immediately felt that we were going to be very well looked after. Stuart and his team were all very easy to talk to and always happy to help with any enquiries. We were gently guided throughout the whole funeral process, with sensitive suggestions being made at the most appropriate times, which helped prepare my daughter and I for certain key points on the day of the funeral. Everything was very professionally done, and we were very well supported with useful guidance to help us with our decision making about the practicalities of the day. Stuart and his team certainly made a very stressful time so much easier to cope with.

  • 5 Robert Chapman 15th Aug 2021

    Stuart and his team have looked after and arranged the funerals of both my parents in the last 15 months. He has been sensitive, kind and efficient in all aspects of the service provided. I would highly recommend him to provide funeral services.

  • 5 Derek Walton 13th Aug 2021

    Some people in their jobs just do it, others are happy to do their job but with Stuart and his girls Kate and Jo they go far ,far beyond their job. The way they looked after my mum and carried out her cremation was truly excellent. I can not say thank you enough times

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.
