  • 5 Jane White 10th May 2021

    Stuart was very professional yet friendly without being familiar and nothing was too much for him to offer. I was impressed that he asked if he might call my husband by his first name and didn't just do so automatically.Twenty four hour support and certainly in my case he went above and beyond what I could possibly have expected. I have already recommended home to friends. I trusted him totally. First class excellent service.

    Stuart was first and foremost very kind and sympathetic. He was patient as we struggled to make decisions and guided us gently through the whole process. He explained the layout of the crematorium to reassure me and came up with lovely suggestions for the whole family. Mum would have approved. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • 5 Anna Robinson 2nd Mar 2021

    Stuart Foster funeral services have been excellent during such a hard time. From the moment I first rang them, they have been wonderful. From being kept informed to making sure I knew they were there to help anyway they could. They made a very stressful time a little bit easier. Thank you!

  • 5 Neil Croft 5th Feb 2021

    We were dealt with gently and with such consideration as this is something done very few times in ones life it is unlikely we would have any understanding of the process. This is where Stuart was able to guide us through the necessary details and explain the options available to us. I cannot recommend Stuart and his company more highly. 

  • 5 Kevin Johnston 5th Feb 2021

    What can I say, what a professional and sympathetic service , everything was taken care of from start to finish, Jo was absolutely amazing and was so kind hearted, she had all the time in the world for us and even had suggestions that we hadn't thought of. "Amazing" and although I hate to say it as feels a weird thing to say ...I would use there services again in a heart beat just hopefully not to soon. Thankyou Stuart and Jo xx

  • 5 Sarah Taylor 23rd Jan 2021

    I had never had to plan a funeral before and didn't know where to start. From the first meeting Stuart made us feel at ease. He was transparent with prices, communication was easy and he kept us fully informed at all times. My Mum was treated with dignity and respect at all times. Kind, caring and professional, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

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.

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?
