  • 5 Suzanne Simm 20th Feb 2021

    We chose Pinders to carry out the Funeral arrangements for our Mum and I can honestly say that the service they offered was exceptional, they took a bit part of the stress away from us and just got on with dealing with everything. They listened and the attention to details was spot on. The whole process and service was just so personal it was like they knew my Mum. I would highly recommend Pinders to anyone who may be looking for a perfect fit to lay their loved ones to rest. 

  • 5 Katrina Usher 15th Feb 2021

    John and the team thought of everything, guided us through the process to ensure our brother received an excellent celebration of his life. I would highly recommend WE Pinder & Son’s.

  • 5 Amanda Shaw 15th Feb 2021

    If I could leave 10 stars, I would. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness went above and beyond anything we anticipated. Michael was an absolute godsend throughout and I can't imagine how he could have done any more; he surpassed all my expectations. Thank you

  • 5 Steve Dickenson 31st Jan 2021

    Was very professional from start to finish.

  • 5 Sasha Gaskell 31st Jan 2021

    WE Pinders were amazing in this sad time for our family. Michael who dealt with us was so caring and thoughtful and he really took care of my nanna who was planning the funeral and talked her through everything. We are so grateful for the kind thoughtful way we were treated by everybody.

  • 5 Suzanne Lee 27th Jan 2021

    Was organised very well without me having to worry about anything. It was all sorted out and our wishes were adhered to . Thank you .

  • 5 Jennifer Worthington 18th Jan 2021

    I, and family, cannot thank John and his team enough for everything they did for organising my husband’s funeral.  John is caring, considerate and kind.  He is helpful and never too busy to give any information when contacted. A thank you also is due to Alistair Butler, the Celebrant, for giving a moving service. The commitment of John and Alistair was so very much appreciated and thank you seems inadequate.

  • 5 Lynn Jellis 15th Jan 2021

    You could not ask for any better service no matter how many times you contacted them

  • 5 Georgina Thomasson 12th Jan 2021

    Michael was very thoughtful and approachable. Very reassuring and professional. Treated the whole family with dignity and that gave us such comfort that Mum was being properly cared for.

  • 5 Catherine Spooner 28th Dec 2020

    Pinders made the whole process so easy at a time when I was unable to think clearly. They arranged absolutely everything and walked me through step by step so professionally and we’re so kind and thoughtful. I can’t thank them enough or recommend more highly. Thank you 

  • 5 Samantha Hartley 28th Dec 2020

    Thank you for your support at this difficult time, the manner in which you conduct your business is exceptional. Your understanding of the family needs were met with  great respect. All our requests for the funeral were welcomed with positive support, your vehicles are immaculate, we thought the hearse with the lighting in the back was so fitting for us with the Royal Airforce Flag used as we requested. Truly professional staff, your services have really helped us during this very difficult time. Thank you so much. Mr and mrs Hartley.

    I cannot recommend W.E.Pinder highly enough. Every request was carried out to the highest possible level. A truly personal send off for our beautiful Mum. As a control freak it’s hard to let go of the reigns but I had total trust in their ability to solve any problems which might occur. 

  • 5 Chelsea Owens 27th Oct 2020

    John was warm and friendly from the first time we met. Nothing was too much trouble and he was able to answer any questions etc. The kindness John showed me and the family made a difficult and upsetting time that bit easier. I am very thankful to the team who looked after my dad and made him look like the dad that I remember and loved. Highly recommend Pinders Funeral Directors, thankyou so much to you all!

    John was absolutely spectacular throughout the entire process. He tailored each individual request and made a difficult experience into a perfectly executed special experience to say goodbye to our Grandad. Everything from transport to advice and support were all managed in a respectful and caring manner. Thank you for everything.

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.

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.
